Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

My Life and Hard Times

My Life and Hard Times - James Thurber

Deducted 1/2 star for being too short.  Otherwise an excellent example of midcentury, midwestern humor excellently written.


This slim volumes reads as a collection of short essays about the early part of Thurber's life and his eccentric family.  I won't go so far as to say they are laugh-out-loud funny, but they are very humorous.  I'll be looking at his other works in the future with a much more open mind.
