Enough Rope

Retail Price:$5.00
Availability:In Stock
Contents:Click to View
Dimensions:5 x 8
Renowned for her acerbic wit, cynicism, and satirical humor, Dorothy Parker skewered the pretensions of everyday life and clichéd relations between men and women in her debut poetry collection, published in 1926. Originally printed in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Life magazine, her early poems were a runaway success with the young, liberated women of the Jazz Age. Notable for their lighthearted, clever verse and razor-sharp quips, the selections include “A Well-Worn Story,” “Godspeed,” “News Item,” “Résumé,” “The False Friends,” “Verse for a Certain Dog,” and many others. Once known as “the wittiest woman in America,” Parker was a founding member of the Algonquin Round Table and the Screen Writers Guild.
