Descrizione
The firecracker verse of a true American original
Best remembered as a member of the Algonquin Round Table, the fabled Jazz Age literary coterie, Dorothy Parker built a reputation as one of the era's most beloved poets. Parker's satirical wit and sharp-edged humor earned her a reputation as the wittiest woman in America. This Penguin Classics edition of her poetry-the companion to Parker's "Complete Stories" and introduced by her noted biographer, Marion Meade-is the only complete collection available, showcasing the dry quips and piercingly introspective verse of a writer whose legend continues to fascinate.
