Farewell, Dorothy Parker
by Ellen Meister




Overview -
When it comes to movie reviews, critic Violet Epps is a powerhouse voice. But that's only because she's learned to channel her literary hero Dorothy Parker, the most celebrated and scathing wit of the twentieth century. If only Violet could summon that kind of strength in her personal life.

Violet visits the Algonquin Hotel in an attempt to find inspiration from the hallowed dining room where Dorothy Parker and so many other famous writers of the 1920s traded barbs, but she gets more than she bargained for when Parker's feisty spirit rematerializes. An irreverent ghost with problems of her own--including a refusal to cross over to the afterlife--Mrs. Parker helps Violet face her fears, becoming in turn mentor and tormentor...and ultimately, friend.
