More than one hundred previously unpublished poems by Dorothy Parker scrutinize the perils and folly of love, experiment with various rhyme schemes, and tackle topical views of the times in which she lived. 10,000 first printing.
A succinct, yet enlightening introduction and footnotes with quintessential Dorothy Parker anecdotes and quotes serve as brilliant foundation for this collection of "lost" poems. In fact, they are pieces that Parker discarded as not fit for publication, and Parker enthusiasts will notice that many foreshadow more-polished later versions. Though Parker once described her verse as "horribly outdated--anything once fashionable is dreadful now," it's clear that even her "unfit" works are far from dreadful.
