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.

About the Author

Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) was a celebrated poet, short story writer, critic, and an Oscar-nominated screenwriter. Much of her work was published in magazines including Vanity Fair and The New Yorker.

Marion Meade is the author of Dorothy Parker: What Fresh Hell Is This? and editor of The Portable Dorothy Parker.
