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 😘❤️❤️
