Additional Information

Taking the reader through the New York that inspired, and was in turn inspired by, the formidable Mrs. Parker, this guide uses rarely seen archival photographs from her life to illustrate Dorothy Parker's development as a writer, a formidable wit, and a public persona. Her favorite bars and salons as well as her homes and offices, most of which are still intact, are uncovered. With the charting of her colorful career, including the decade she spent as a member of the Round Table, as well as her intense private life, readers will find themselves drawn into the lavish New York City of the 1920s and 30s.

In his years running the Dorothy Parker Society of New York, Kevin Fitzpatrick has gathered astounding details about the New York of Dorothy Parker. Book in hand you walk where Mrs. Parker walked. And best of all, so many of the landmarks --the Algonquin hotel where Mr. Benchley and Mrs. Parker and their Round Table held forth, the apartment buildings in which she lived, the many of the theatres where she reviewed plays-- are still standing and look pretty much as they did in the 1920s and 30s. And for what has been lost Mr. Fitzpatrick supplies photos. The book is full of high-quality vintage photographs, some never before published.

The casual reader will find the book visual candy and a delight to read. The Parker or jazz-age scholar will find attention to detail and copious use of original source worthy of an academic tome, but written with a touch as light (and as insightful) as a Parker witicism.

I recommend it highly

I luuuuuuved it! I thought the information, the history, the architecture, the photos, the trivia nuggets---everything was just so interesting and thought-provoking. I was especially struck by the list of sayings/words first attributed to Dorothy Parker. The book ties together so many aspects of New York City in the 1920s. It's educational and fun!
Several years back, I enjoyed the honor and pleasure of attending my inaugural Manhattan meeting with author Kevin C. Fitzpatrick none other than atop the Empire State Building. Mr. Fitzpatrick was, at that time, a long-distance client of mine working as Senior writer/producer for and I had flown in from Seattle on business. Our meeting venue, featuring one seriously breathtaking view of that still-unforgettable skyline, was most fitting indeed--as one rarely comes across a greater appreciator of "The City That Never Sleeps." Fitzpatrick's undying, ever-evolving passion for NYC and its amazing history is marvelously depicted in his debut publishing. If ever there was a more quintessential expert on the divine Dorothy Parker and the infamous metropolis she cherished all her life, it is most certainly Fitzpatrick.

Meticulously researched, expertly and lovingly written, beautifully illustrated, including rare photos, images, and SO much more, this gem of a book proves... Read more
