it was amazing
bookshelves: super-classics
Read in January, 2010

What is the best thing about Dorothy Parker? Her spot on skewing of pomposity. I just found this book last week-had never even heard of it and let me tell you, I'd like to think that I know most everything on Mrs. Parker nee Rothschild.

These are the reviews often quoted when people use her wit to show that they have some too. Done under the name Constant Reader (which seems like a great bookstore name to me), she never signed them but everyone knew who was writing them, with her quill pen dipped in poison.
my favorite review was of "House on Pooh Corner". At the end she says:
Tonstant Weader fwowed up.
Says it all.
