The title of this book makes me think of those yummy Portuguese pastéis de nata custard tarts ?

jenniferw88 😂 because I knew it was you without looking at the username because of the 🐿! 10mo
squirrelbrain @jenniferw88 - of course you did! 🤣🤣 I‘ve plenty more 🐿 that want to get in on the action - I shall have to post more squirrels posing with books! 10mo
jenniferw88 Haha! I quite like squirrels but prefer the red variety. I'm lucky to live near Brownsea Island and so have opportunities to see them if I want to! 10mo

squirrelbrain Ooh I‘d love to see red squirrels in the wild! Saw a very quick glimpse of one once in the Lake District... @jenniferw88 10mo
jenniferw88 I can also recognise @julesG 's posts when her Kindle cover is in the picture - it's so distinctive I don't need to look at the username! 😂 10mo
RachelO I think your squirrel was hoping for custard tarts as well! 10mo
julesG @jenniferw88 Thanks! 😉 10mo
Landslide Pastéis de nata are the best! 10mo

Finished off this mini-collection of shorts this morning with a painfully funny tale of someone trying to remember if they‘d embarrassed themselves the night before.

This is a cute short intro to Parker‘s biting way with words.

And, yes, I did totally pick it as a first book to finish in 2019 as it was small and would get me off to a fast start. ;)

Thank you @Oryx for introducing me to Dorothy Parker. I wasn't sure what to expect- I'm still not entirely sure I do, but I'll definitely read more.

The stories, the characters, are devastatingly sad, the writing's just beautiful, but the descriptions are cutting and bitingly funny! Loved it!

In my previous post I tried to alert @erzascarletbookgasm about the Penguin Moderns and look what arrives for me today. Total surprise #bookmail from her with one of the PM editions, Dorothy Parker! 😭 (tears of joy ❤️) And yes, I've been coveting that edition of Frankenstein!! Plus an Atwood that I don't have 😍 Thank you so much, my friend!

I'm touched. You're too kind. Thank you for making Litsy a warm, lovely place @erzascarletbookgasm 😘❤️❤️
