Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375761276, Paperback)When Harold Ross founded The New Yorker in 1925, he called it a “comic weekly.” And although it has become much more than that, it has remained true in its irreverent heart to the founder’s description, publishing the most illustrious literary humorists in the modern era—among them Robert Benchley, Dorothy Parker, Groucho Marx, James Thurber, S.

Fierce Pajamas is a treasury of laughter from the magazine W. H. Auden called the “best comic magazine in existence.”

Such well-loved sketches as Thurber's 'The secret life of Walter Mitty' take their place alongside light-hearted essays on food, film, and flights of fancy that follow an apparently simple premise to the point of no return, and sometimes well beyond"--Container.
