"When it comes to expressing the pleasure and pain of being just a touch too smart to be happy, Dorothy Parker is still the champion, after all these years. Along with Robert Benchley, Alexander Woollcott, and the rest of the Algonquin Round Table, she dominated American popular literature in the 1920s and 1930s. These unabridged selections of more than thirty short stories and poems is essential for any Parker fan and an excellent way for new readers to make the acquaintance of one of the twentieth century's most quotable authors, whose memorable lines include: 'She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B,' 'This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force,' and 'Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses' " -- from publisher's web site.
