About the book
Novelist Ellen Meister has been captivated by legendary writer/critic Dorothy Parker’s audacious voice since her teen years, when, as an aspiring writer, she discovered Parker’s smart, cynical wit and her entirely modern understanding of the human heart. In 2013, Meister delivered Farewell, Dorothy Parker, a nuanced tale that introduced the acid-tongued Mrs. Parker to a whole new generation of admirers, and helped propel a DorothyParker Facebook page to almost 160k fans.
Now, for women’s fiction readers and fans of Dorothy Parker comes Dorothy Parker Drank Here, Meister’s second critically-acclaimed and wickedly funny fictional novel that “brings to life—or rather, brings to ghostliness—the spirit of one of the most famous writers of the Algonquin Round Table” (Shelf Awareness).
The feisty spirit of Dorothy Parker haunts the halls of the Algonquin Hotel with her piercing wit and unexpectedly tender wisdom. For more than forty years, she has been spurning the white light, drink in hand, searching for some entertaining company on this side of eternity. Has she stayed at the party too long? When she begins a friendship with a once promising writer who’s now a recluse in the hotel, waiting to die from cancer, everything begins to change for Mrs. Parker in ways she never expected. Meister brilliantly captures the pathos and insouciance of the formidable title character in an unforgettable tale that will resonate with Parker fans and newcomers alike.
