Description
"Dorothy Parker's quips and light verse have become part of the American literary landscape, but, as this collection of her complete short stories demonstrates, Parker's talents extended far beyond brash one-liners and clever rhymes. Her stories not only bring to life the urban milieu that was her bailiwick but lay bare the uncertainties and disappointments of ordinary people living ordinary lives."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
