Synopsis
“Silly of me to blame it on dates, but so it happened to be. Dammit, it was the Twenties, and we had to be smarty.” – Dorothy Parker

The Algonquin Round Table, or “The Vicious Circle” as it was commonly known, came about much like so many social gatherings. A few friends get together, have a good time, and decide it would be fun to do it on a regular basis.

Now give them all literary or theatrical pedigrees and larger than life personalities. Then put them in a time and place that encourages artistic creativity, excessive social drinking and some rather outrageous behavior.

Lastly, give them national exposure. What emerges is a group that not only sets the standard for contemporary literary style and wit, but helps change forever the face of American culture.

This collection contains early poems, stories and anecdotes from seven of the Algonquin Round Table writers: Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Franklin Pierce Adams, Heywood Broun, Edna Ferber, Ruth Hale, and Donald Ogden Stewart.

Each author, and each story is included in the linked table of contents.
