About the Author:

MARION MEADE is the author of Dorothy Parker: What Fresh Hell Is This? She has also written biographies of Woody Allen, Buster Keaton, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Madame Blavatsky, and Victoria Woodhull, as well as two novels about medieval France. She lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

This well-read, well-written biography caresses your ears like a tautly written novel. Conlin, whose voice is both rich and melodious, reads with great style. Conlin effortlessly tosses off Parker's cutting "bons mots" without missing a beat yet pauses just long enough to cue the listener into a quote or a break in the text. She convincingly conveys Parker's rapier wit, flamboyance and self-destructiveness. Meade's writing style is eminently accessible. Actions are put into historical context and though the cast of characters in Parker's life is lengthy, we never feel the need of a reference sheet. R.O.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
