This is the unicorn from the James Thurber Home and Museum in Columbus, Ohio. He is a figure from Thurber’s short story, “The Unicorn in the Garden.”
Actually, the story is so short, it qualifies as flash fiction, a term that had not been invented in Thurber’s time.
I love writing flash fiction, and have included some of my favorite pieces here. Some were created in an on-line writer’s group. Some aren’t “fiction” at all, they’re just the sound of me whining about crazy things I’ve seen or heard. Flash kvetches, as it were.
