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.
