My Life and Hard Times by James Thurber

This autobiography is a selection of very humorous highlights of James Thurber's life. For being written in 1933, it may well have served as several episodes of "Arrested Development," or other such show. The author has a matter-of-fact manner of describing odd events and eccentric people. The book includes a smattering of sketches which enhance the stories nicely. Leaky electricity and ghosts are included, for those interested.
