How to Drink Like Dorothy Parker

“…many don’t discover her work in literature classes, they come to her first by her reputation. First they learn the quotes and bon mots, which leads to finding her books. What many discover is a woman easy to identify with: she loved her gin, boyfriends, and dogs, and that’s what she wrote about. Scores of quotes associated with Parker zoom around websites about missing deadlines and drinking too much.”

HOW HAVE I NEVER READ DOROTHY PARKER?! *running to library*
