Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis

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" and her O. Henry Award winner "Big Blonde," several other short stories, and, unlike other audio collections, some of her review work.

Includes:

Big Blonde
Review of Emily Post
Dusk before Fireworks
Review of Redemption
But the One on the Right
Horsie
Diary of a New York Lady
The Game
Just a Little One
The Bolt Behind the Blue
Valedictory Review

Lady With a Lamp
The Waltz
Cousin Larry
A Telephone Call

Performed by Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Alfre Woodard, & Shirley Booth
