Baker & Taylor
The author culls the stories, poems, articles, reviews, correspondence, and song lyrics of Dorothy Parker to reconstruct the author's life in a fascinating posthumous "autobiography" that relies on Parker's own words to tell the tale. Original.

NBN
Combining through Parker's stories, poems, articles, reviews, correspondence, and even her rare journalism and song lyrics, editor Barry Day has selected and arranged passages that describe her life and its preoccupations-urban living, the theater and cinema, battle of the sexes, and death by dissipation.

Book News
Despite her prolific output, writer and wit Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) never produced an autobiography. This volume contains passages selected from among her published writings and correspondence that describe her life and ideas. In these passages, Parker addresses her early career writing for magazines, her championing of social causes such as integration, and the obsession with suicide that became another element of her satire. Day is the author or editor of numerous books, plays, and musicals. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Blackwell North Amer
Despite her prolific output, ageless writer and wit Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) never penned an autobiography (although if she had, she said it would have been titled Mongrel). Combing through her stories, poems, articles, reviews, correspondence, and even her rare journalism and song lyrics, editor Barry Day has selected and arranged passages that describe her life and its preoccupations - urban living, the theater and the cinema, the battle of the sexes, and death by dissipation.

Natl Book Network
