His biographical sketches of his parents, God and My Father (1932), Life with Father (1935), and Life with Mother (1937), won him popular recognition; incidents from these three books were used by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse for the play Life with Father (1939), which was one of the longest-running plays in Broadway history. Day's other works include essays, This Simian World (1920), and a collection of light verse and drawings, Scenes from the Mesozoic (1935).
