The Dorothy Parker Audio Collection

Author, poet, screenwriter, and outstanding member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table, Dorothy Parker was known for her quick wit, keen observations, and remarkable insight into the human condition. Regarded as brilliant, but known to be an alcoholic and often depressed, Parker's work pushes all buttons at once: humor, anger, love, pity, and everything in between.

Publisher's Summary

Author, poet, screenwriter, and outstanding member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table, Dorothy Parker was known for her quick wit, keen observations, and remarkable insight into the human condition. Regarded as brilliant, but known to be an alcoholic and often depressed, Parker's work pushes all buttons at once: humor, anger, love, pity, and everything in between. She pulled no punches, writing with pure, unadulterated passion; her work is timeless and as pertinent to today's society as it was to that of the time she wrote.

Among the gems included in this collection are her first published short story, "Such a Pretty Little Picture", her O. Henry Award winner "Big Blonde", several other short stories, and, unlike other audio collections, some of her review work.

    "Not for me"

    I just didn't get onboard with Dorothy Parker's style at all - I know she's iconic but I couldn't follow anything!
