The James Thurber Audio Collection

Sinopsis

My father was in the hospital and every night when I visited him, I read aloud to him. James Thurber. And one night he said “you really should do that on your show,” and I said “Dad, it’s a television newscast. I’d love to, but how could it possibly fit?” And he said “How often have I ever suggested anything for your shows?” And I remembered that he never had. But I also reminded him that there were things like copyrights and bills, to which he said “Try it. You never know.”

I began to read Thurber once-a-week on television, and continue to do so whenever and wherever I can. I’m happy to say this has sparked a mini-revival which I hope erupts into a full scale newfound appreciation for a man whose writings are nearly perfect. He did not intend them to be read aloud, but they are ideally suited for the task: clean, economical, vivid, full of crashes and thuds—and silences, too.

And for that matter, they make wonderful tributes to memories—memories of my Dad, and Rosemary Thurber’s.—Keith Olbermann, May 19, 2011
