Portable Dorothy Parker by Dorothy Parker

Book Description

The 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.

Ladies of the Corridor by Dorothy Parker Ladies of the Corridor, Paperback (August 2008)
