Description
The second revision since its original publication in 1944, this sublime collection of the wit and wisdom of Dorothy Parker ranges over the verse, stories, essays, and journalism of one of the 20th century's most quotable authors. This edition has much fresh material added, including the short story "Such a Pretty Little Picture," along with a selection of articles written for Vogue, McCall's, House and Garden, and two political pieces published in New Masses, "Not Enough" and "Sophisticated Poetry—And the Hell With It." "Self-Portrait" reprints an interview she did in 1956 with the Paris Review, and "Letters: 1905-1962" opens with correspondence from twelve-year-old Dottie writing to her father during a summer vacation on Long Island and concludes fifteen letters later with a missive from Hollywood describing her fondness for Marilyn Monroe. Marion Meade, author of Dorothy Parker: What Fresh Hell Is This? and Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin edits and provides the introduction to this new edition, and cartoonist and book designer extraordinaire Seth wraps it all in a cartoon cover.
