Dorothy Parker

I had the good fortune at St Mark’s Bookshop in New York, to find a book I’ve been missing since I packed it away eight years ago in Pittsburgh. The Portable Dorothy parker is something I opened again and again when it was on my bookshelf.

So today, when it arrived fresh from America, I opened it at random, began reading aloud and recorded this short, five page story. I can’t say it’s my favorite, but then again, I can’t say which one is. They’re all worthwhile.

Wow, great reading!
I tried locate my copy of The Collected Dorothy Parker (Penguin edition) on my shelf but it’s apparently taken off to some place else, probably to St Mark’s:-)

Kristen, that is a good reading of one of my favorite stories of Mrs. Parker’s. And “The Portable” is like the bible for Parker fans; a new edition is coming out in March.

Hope you can make it to Parkerfest Sept. 30-Oct. 2. All info on my site

Keep up the great site.
