    One of my all-time favorites

    Dorothy Parker is possibly the wittiest and most honest female author that I have ever read. Her realistic short stories and hilarious poems are also eloquently written. Some of my favorites out of the book are "Resume", "The Lovely Leave", and "Big Blonde". A read you will read again and again.

    more from this reviewer

    There should be a copy in everyone's library.

    Keep in mind, it's a collection. It's not a novel. It's great for conversation starters at parties...to read a funny short story or a couple of Ms. Parker's famous witticisms. I would never suggest reading this book from cover-to-cover; but it is perfect for a light, intelligent, and entertaining "in-between" read.

    As Good As Any

    Dorothy Parker's writing is timeless. I've read her works over and over for years and she has a permanent place in my collection. A timeless voice, wit and a boldness that made her name in her day.
