Contains 122 forgotten pieces by Dorothy Parker that can only be read in this unique edition.

During the early years of her literary career Dorothy Parker wrote more than three hundred poems and verses for a variety of popular magazines and newspapers. Many of these were collected in three volumes of poetry. It is the remainder, which she failed to collect and whose very existence has been unknown to most people for more than half a century, that comprise this volume. These 122 forgotten pieces display the raw talent and dexterity of America’s most renowned cynic. Here is the distinctive wit, irony and precision that continues to attract succeeding generations of readers.
