Barry Day finds his perfect subject in Dorothy Parker, the pessimistic muse of the wits of the Algonquin Round Table who epitomized the spirit of New York and the 1920s and 1930s. * Post and Courier *
Day organizes her famous witticisms into a kind of autobiography, walking us through her preoccupations-women and men, love, death, art-in a way that shows us she did indeed bequeath us reminiscence in the form of her own verse, short stories and those marvelous stinging reviews.
One writer described her as a mixture between Little Nell and Lady Macbeth. Yet the witty Dorothy Parker mostly seemed sad. Her short stories and verse highlight the plight of women who can't fit in, who can't find a mate. * Press Enterprise *
