The Collected Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker

Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd

Dorothy Parker, more than any of her contemporaries, captured the spirit of her age in her writing. The decadent 1920S and 1930s in New York were a time of great experiment and daring for women. For the rich, life seemed a continual party, but the excesses took their emotional toll. With a biting wit and perceptive insight, Dorothy Parker examines the social mores of her day and exposes the darkness beneath the dazzle. Her own life exemplified this duality, for a while she was one of the most talked-about women of her day, she was also known as a “masochist whose passion for unhappiness knew no bounds”. As philosopher Irwin Edman said, she was “a Sappho who could combine a heartbreak with a wisecrack”. Her dissection of the jazz age in poetry and prose is collected in this volume along with articles and reviews.
