Overview

Taking the reader through the New York that inspired, and was in turn inspired by, the formidable Mrs. Parker, this guide uses rarely seen archival photographs from her life to illustrate Dorothy Parker's development as a writer, a formidable wit, and a public persona. Her favorite bars and salons as well as her homes and offices, most of which are still intact, are uncovered. 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 30s.

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.
