..."as intimate as the rustle of sheets"
Hilarious. From her sketches alone:
"...if people don't like her frankness, they can lump it. She must either speak her mind or else she must not speak at all. There are many who feel that she makes an unfortunate choice."
"...be freed from from any effort at entertaining. It would really amaze Mrs. Frisbie to learn how many of her acquaintance are wholly in sympathy with the idea."
"If ever she were brought face to face with a germ she would promptly lose consciousness from sheer terror. So, one rather images, would teh germ."
"The fact remains she would make a splendid wife for some man."
"..if she had her way, she would be with the young people all the time. Quite a formidable barrier to her ever attaining her wish is the feeling of the young people in the matter."
"The unfortunate part of it is that one forgets all about him long before the next opportunity of seeking him out occurs."
"...Mrs Larkin admits that her friends would be wholly at a loss should she not see them...How true it is that a great sacrifice is grossly unappreciated in this world."
"...a treat to listen to Mrs. Comee's conversation. Mrs. Commee herself generously grants one every possible opportunity of enjoying the privledge."

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author by this name in the Goodreads data base.
Dorothy Parker was an American writer and poet best known for her caustic wit, wisecracks, and sharp eye for 20th century urban foibles. From a conflicted and unhappy childhood, Parker rose to acclaim, both for her literary output in such venues as The New Yorker and as a founding member of the Algonquin Round Table. Following the breakup of the circle, Parker traveled to Hollywood to pursue screenwriting. Her successes there, including two Academy Award nominations, were curtailed as her involvement in left-wing politics led to a place on the Hollywood blacklist.
Dismissive of her own talents, she deplored her reputation as a "wisecracker." Nevertheless, her literary output and reputation for her sharp wit have endured.
