by Dorothy Parker; Edited and with an introduction by Kevin C. Fitzpatrick
Now, for the first time in nearly a century, the public is invited to enjoy Dorothy Parkerís sharp wit and biting commentary on the Jazz Age hits and flops in this first-ever published collection of her groundbreaking Broadway reviews. Mrs. Parker reviewed some of the biggest names of the era: the Barrymores, George M. Cohan, W.C. Fields, Helen Hayes, Al Jolson, Eugene OíNeil, Will Rogers, and the Ziegfeld Follies. Her words of praiseóand contemptófor the dramas, comedies, musicals, and revues are just as fresh and funny today as they were in the age of speakeasies and bathtub gin. Annotated with a notes section by Kevin C. Fitzpatrick, the volume shares Mrs. Parkerís outspoken opinions of a great era of live theatre in America.
