Dorothy Parker Audio

Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5

Dorothy Parker made two full-length LP recordings of her work. Verve asked her to read her poems and stories for a record called The World of Dorothy Parker (Verve V-15029). Her other LP is from Spoken Arts called An Informal Hour with Dorothy Parker (Spoken Arts 726). At the time of the recording sessions, Mrs. Parker was in her seventies. Her voice ravaged by years of Chesterfields and Johnny Walker, this offers a peek at the real Mrs. Parker. She died three years after recording her work. Special thanks to Jon Snyder and Catherine Chodack for loaning me their LPs. Note: The NAACP owns the copyright to these recordings, so copying them for commercial use or performance is prohibited.
