James Thurber has been called "one of our great American institutions' (Stanley Walker), "a magnificent satirist ("Boston Transcript"), and "a Joyce in false-face" ("New York Times"). The "New York Herald Tribune" submits that he is "as blithe as Benchley ... as savage as Swift ... surprisingly wise and witty, " while the "Times" of London, out of enthusiasm and a profound regard for truth, proclaims that "Thurber is Thurber." In "Fables for Our Time," Thurber the Moralist is in the ascendancy. Here are a score or more lessons-in-prose dedicated to conventional sinners and proving--what you will. The fables are imperishably illustrated, and are supplemented by Mr. Thurber's own pictorial interpretations of famous poems in a wonderful and joyous assemblage.
