by | Read by Ben Stiller

Fiction • 15 mins. • Unabridged • © 1942

Ben Stiller was not only aptly cast in the recently released movie of the same title, he’s also sublime as the entertaining narrator of Thurber's original short story. A timid man escapes his boring life by living in his imagination—which is full of fantasies of daring heroic adventures. Stiller grasps this concept by imbuing each new character that Walter Mitty assumes with a bold creative voice. Mitty’s fantasy world is in direct opposition to his melancholy existence, which is, of course, the point. Although the short story is brief, Stiller continues the audiobook by imparting his interpretation of the story and its lasting significance and relevance.
