A Thurber Carnival
"...these sketches of humorous scenes from American life include some of Thurber's most celebrated and insightful satires: The Night the Bed Fell, Gentlemen Shoppers, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and the unforgettable File and Forget in which Thurber recounts his famous correspondence with various publishers who ship him books which he doesn't want and never ordered. A perfect evening of comedy." -- Publisher's description.
