Ladies of the Corridor by Dorothy Parker

Book Description

One of the foremost humorists in literature, Dorothy Parker drew from the dark side of her imagination to pen "The Ladies of the Corridor". Loosely based on Parker's life, it is a searing drama about women living on their own in a New York residence hotel. With husbands dead and children, if any, too busy for aging parents, the ladies are empty-nesters struggling with lives that have lost their centers. Co-written with famed Hollywood playwright Arnaud d'Usseau, "The Ladies of the Corridor" is a frank meditation on the limitations of a woman's life that teems with Parker's signature wit.
