Fresh Hell-The Life and Loves of Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker is an icon of American literature and popular culture. She was a short story writer, a screen writer, a poet and a humorist. Her witty remarks are still quoted. The Algonquin Hotel is known as the home of the Round Table where writers and critics met for long lunches from about 1919 to 1929. Besides Dorothy Parker, the regular  list of celebrities included among others humorist Robert Benchley, playwrights George S. Kaufman and Robert Sherwood,  columnists, Heywood Broun and Franklin P. Adams,  critic, Alexander Woollcott and Harold Ross, editor of The New Yorker.. They were joined by luminaries from the theatre and film worlds, as well  as journalists and other writers such as Tallulah Bankhead, Noel Coward,  and Harpo Marx to name a few.
