James Thurber

Actor Peter Ustinov reads the fables of humorist James Thurber. James Thurber contributed cartoons, stories, and humorous sketches to the New Yorker from 1927 until his death in 1961. Thurber, an original American humorist, follows the pattern of the Greek fabulist Aesop in illustrating human moral dilemmas by using animal characters. Ustinov's rich voice brings these brief stories alive.
