Novelists Christopher Buckley and Robert Kaplow and memoirist/essayist Firoozeh Dumas have been named to the jury for this year’s Thurber Prize, awarded annually to “the outstanding book of humor writing published in the United States.” Buckley won the prize four years ago for his novel No Way to Treat a First Lady, beating out Kaplow’s Me and Orson Welles. Dumas was a finalist the following year for her memoir, Funny in Farsi. Nominations will be accepted from among the books published in 2007 until April, and the winner will be announced at a ceremony at the Algonquin in October.
