From twentieth century humorist James Thurber, a celebrated and poignant memoir about his years at The New Yorker with the unforgettable Harold Ross.

Includes an introduction by Adam Gopnik, and illustrations by James Thurber

"If you get Ross down on paper," warned Wolcott Gibbs to Thurber," nobody will ever believe it."  But readers of this unforgettable memoir will find that they do.

At the helm of America's most influential literary magazine for more than half a century, Harold Ross introduced the country to a host of exciting talent, including Robert Benchley, Alexander Woolcott, Ogden Nash, Peter Arno, Charles Addams, and Dorothy Parker.  But no one could have written about this irascible, eccentric genius more affectionately or more critically than James Thurber -- an American icon in his own right -- whose portrait of Ross captures not only a complex literary giant but a historic friendship and a glorious era as well. 

Offering a peek into the lives of two American literary giants and the New York literary heyday, My Years with Ross is a true classic, and a testament to the enduring influence of their genius.
