James Grover Thurber December 8, — November 2, was an American cartoonist, author, journalist, playwright, and celebrated wit. Thurber was best known for his cartoons and short stories, published mainly in The New Yorker magazine and collected in his numerous books.
One of the most popular humorists of his time, Thurber celebrated the comic frustrations and eccentricities of ordinary people. Many of his short stories are humorous fictional memoirs from his life, but he also wrote darker material, such as "The Whip-Poor-Will", a story of madness and murder. The Middle-Aged Man on the Flying Trapeze has several short stories with a tense undercurrent of marital discord. The book was published the year of his divorce and remarriage.
His story "You Could Look It Up", about a three-foot adult being brought in to take a walk in a baseball game, is said to have inspired Bill Veeck's stunt with Eddie Gaedel with the St. Louis Browns in Veeck claimed an older provenance for the stunt, but was certainly aware of the Thurber story.

I suppose that the high-water mark of my youth in Columbus, Ohio, was the night the bed fell on my father. It makes a better recitation unless, as some friends of mine have said, one has heard it five or six times than it does a piece of writing, for it is almost necessary to throw furniture around, shake doors, and bark like a dog, to lend the proper atmosphere and verisimilitude to what is admittedly a somewhat incredible tale. Still, it did take place.

In My Life and Hard Times, humorist James Thurber looks back fifteen years to relate nine stories that illustrate the oddball family conditions in which he grows up in the era of World War I. James Thurber's My Life and Hard Times consists of nine vignettes that stand out in the memory of his youth. They center around a grandfather whose mind and temper flash back to fighting in the American Civil War, a jittery mother and father somewhat at odds over the state of the household, a docile older brother Herman, a normally "quiet and self-contained" younger brother, Roy, who periodically feels the need to play pranks, and the author, whose weak eyes never miss the vivid details of life. The inexplicable seems to happen to the Thurbers in the wee hours of the morning. In "The Night the Bed Fell," Mother fears that Father will be killed in the heavy attic bed, and when she hears James' cot collapse, assumes that it has happened. In "The Car We Had to Push," the family's odd views about cars and electricity are examined, Roy plays a prank while driving, the badly-parked family car is mangled by a passing street car, and Grandfather has to be calmed about an overlooked funeral.
