Portable Dorothy Parker by Dorothy Parker
Book DescriptionThe second revision in sixty years, this sublime collection ranges over the verse, stories, essays, and journalism of one of the twentieth century's most quotable authors. For this new twenty-first-century edition, devoted admirers can be sure to find their favourite verse and stories. But a variety of fresh material has also been added to create a fuller, more authentic picture of her life's work. There are some stories new to the Portable, 'Such a Pretty Little Picture,' along with a selection of articles written for such disparate publications as Vogue, McCall's, House and Garden, and New Masses. Two of these pieces concern home decorating, a subject not usually associated with Mrs Parker.

A collection of poems.
Ladies of the Corridor, Paperback (August 2008)
Offers a 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. This book features a meditation on the limitations of a woman's life.
Complete Stories, Paperback (February 2003)
As this complete collection of her short stories demonstrates, Parker's talents extended far beyond brash one-liners and clever rhymes. Her stories not only bring to life the urban milieu that was her bailiwick but lay bare the uncertainties and disappointments of ordinary people living ordinary lives.
