James Grover Thurber (1894-1961) was an American cartoonist, author, and journalist best known for his cartoons and short stories in which he celebrated the comic frustrations of ordinary people. He began in 1921 as a reporter for Ohio's Columbus Dispatch and later for the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers while in Paris. After moving to New York in 1925, he joined as an editor for The New Yorker magazine with the help of E.B. White, his friend and fellow The New Yorker contributor. His cartoonist career began in 1930 after White discovered and submitted some of Thurber's drawings for publication. Thurber continued to publish stories and drawing in The New Yorker until the 1950's. Because he was blinded in one eye in a childhood accident, he drew on large sheets of paper in black crayon or black paper with white chalk. The result was distinctive line drawings of people and dogs which reflected his unique view on life.
In addition to My Life and Hard Times , Faded Page also has Lanterns & Lances, Let Your Mind Alone! and Further Fables for Our Time, with more titles to come. Come join us and proof a few pages to help us bring more Thurber public domain titles to Canada.
