Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

Considered the equal to White, Thurber and Liebling during his three decades at The New Yorker, from the late 1920s until his death in 1958, Gibbs was a mainstay of the magazine.  He published poems, short stories, profiles, casuals and acted as the magazine’s theater critic.   He also found time to write a hit play, Season in the Sun, that was based on a series of short stories he had published in The New Yorker.
