About James Thurber

James Thurber - The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs
The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.

“The title says it all. It’s from the New Yorker! It’s about dogs! . . .  And, of course, it has wonderful cartoons. . . . Marvelous . . . A must-have.”—Booklist

“Do you have a dog lover in your family or circle of friends?  Do you need to get them a holiday gift?  Look no further.  The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs is a terrific book. . . . Big in dimension, quantity and quality.”—Forbes.com

“I usually hate anthologies. . . . But this one works triumphantly. . . . Above all it works because there is tremendous writing. Because of the amused insouciance, the self-deprecation, the gentle unfolding of a structural irony, the skip and reveal of the final sentence, the knowledge of Not Too Much that seems intrinsic to the New Yorker. And cartoons.”—Edmund De Waal, The Spectator
