Author Bio
James Thurber
The famed cartoonist and "New Yorker" writer James Thurber lost his left eye as a child from playing William Tell with his brother. He eventually became wholly blind. In 1951 he gave up drawing altogether, although he wrote until his death of pneumonia in 1961. He has acknowledged the influence of E. B. White and Henry James in his work; and greatly preferred the short story form over the novel. Renowned for his humor, he once told "Public Radio", "With humor, you have to look out for traps. You're likely to be very gleeful with what you first put down and you think it's...very funny. One reason you go over and over it is to make the piece sound less as if you were having a lot of fun with yourself. You try to play it down."
