Beschreibung

Before there was Fran Leibowitz, there was Dorothy Parker. Before there was practically anyone, there was Dorothy Parker. When it comes to expressing the pleasure and pain of being just a touch too smart to be happy, she's winner and still champion after all these years. Along with Robert Benchley, Alexander Woollcott, and the rest of the Algonquin Round Table, she dominated American pop lit in the 20s and 30s; like Ginger Rogers, she did it all backwards. An essential book for any Parker fan, The Portable Dorothy Parker is also an excellent way for new readers to make her acquaintance.
