Maybe David Letterman’s next career will be an author.  TV’s Late Show host is a finalist for this year’s Thurbur Prize for American Humour.  Letterman and illustrator Bruce McCall have been nominated for the satirical picture book This Land Was Made for You and Me (But Mostly Me).  And the timing couldn’t be better after Dave’s retirement announcement earlier this year.

Letterman’s fame sets him apart from the other Thurbur Prize nominees, and so does his employment. He is the only finalist not affiliated with The New Yorker.

The other nominees announced today for the $5,000 prize are magazine contributors Liza Donnelly for Women On Men and John Kenney for Truth In Advertising.  The award will be presented Sept. 30th.  The prize is named after James Thurber, himself a New York humourist.
