The tale of Claudia and David Naughton, newlyweds, just beginning their married life. Young, enthusiastic, and very much in love, they weren’t suffering from any medical maladies or suspicions of infidelity. Instead, they were simply facing the many challenges of any new marriage - finding an apartment, getting used to each other’s quirks, and learning to live together on a daily basis. Lacking many of the characteristics of a traditional soap opera, ‘Claudia’ didn’t offer the anguish and heartbreak that typified such long-running soaps as ‘Valiant Lady’, ‘Backstage Wife’, and ‘Ma Perkins’ - and, being sponsored by Coca-Cola, it even lacked the traditional sponsorship of a soap company. But the very elements it was lacking quickly became its strengths: with very few of the ‘tune in tomorrow’ hooks that most soaps used to lure listeners back the next day, people returning to ‘Claudia’ instead came back for the interesting, fully developed characters, the light-hearted banter between them.

Author Bio: James Thurber

James Thurber (1894–1961), one of the outstanding American humorists and cartoonists of the twentieth century, was born in Columbus, Ohio, and launched his professional writing career as a reporter for the Columbus Dispatch in 1920. He began writing for the New Yorker in 1927 after his friend and fellow writer E. B. White got him a job at the magazine. Though hampered by failing eyesight, Thurber wrote nearly forty books, including collections of essays, short stories, fables, and children’s stories. He won a Tony Award for his popular Broadway play, A Thurber Carnival. Both that story and My Life and Hard Times have appeared in countless editions and dozens of languages throughout the world.
