A Journey Into Dorothy Parker's New Yorkby Kevin C Fitzpatrick, Marion Meade
Taking the reader through the New York that inspired, and was in turn inspired by, the formidable Mrs. Parker, the new edition of this guide includes never-before-seen archival photographs to illustrate Dorothy Parker’s development as a writer, a wit, and a public persona. The book uncovers her favorite bars and salons as well as her homes and offices, most of which are still intact. With the charting of her colorful career, including the decade she spent as a member of the Round Table, as well as her intense private life, readers will find themselves drawn into the lavish New York City of the 1920s and 1930s.
