Dorothy Parker Drank Here
by Ellen Meister




Overview -
In a prequel to her appearance in Ellen Meister's "delicious"* Farewell, Dorothy Parker, the acid-tongued writer haunts the halls of the Algonquin Hotel with her piercing wit and unexpectedly tender wisdom.

Death cannot quell the feisty spirit of Dorothy Parker.

For more than forty years, Mrs. Parker has been spurning the white light and wandering the famous halls of the Algonquin, drink in hand, searching for someone--anyone--who will keep her company on this side of eternity.

She may have found the perfect candidate in Ted Shriver, a brilliant literary voice of the 1970s, silenced early in a promising career by a devastating plagiarism scandal. He is now a recluse hiding away in the old hotel, waiting to die.

But when a young, ambitious TV producer enters the hotel in search of Shriver, she and Dorothy Parker begin to discover a host of secrets surrounding the life of the famous man--and why he seems as anxious to enter the beyond as Mrs. Parker is to avoid it.
