About the Book

My Life and Hard Times

Widely hailed as one of the finest humorists of the twentieth century, James Thurber looks back at his life growing up in Columbus, Ohio, with the same humor and sharp wit that defined his famous sketches and writings. In MY LIFE AND HARD TIMES, first published in 1933, he recounts the delightful chaos and frustrations of family, boyhood, youth odd dogs, recalcitrant machinery, and the foibles of human nature.
