Fitzpatrick provides a beautiful look at the homes and haunts of Dorothy Parker. This book is very well illustrated and includes some never before published photographs of Mrs. Parker by Roy Schatt and original artwork by Natalie Ascenios. The author clearly understands and appreciates his subject.
