2.0 out of 5 stars dated, stories lack resolution
I had never read any Dorothy Parker but was looking for a new seam of reading and having enjoyed my first Patricia Highsmith found this on the "customers who also shopped for this" link and highly recommended on a listmania list.I took it on holiday but I just didn't really enjoy these stories. I read about seven of them and gave up. I found the stories had dated badly...

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy Parker is a true hero for American fiction, 12 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Ms. Parker's collection of short stories are modern and funny. Many of the dialogues detailed in her works can still be heard uttered today between men and women.

I had never read any Dorothy Parker but was looking for a new seam of reading and having enjoyed my first Patricia Highsmith found this on the "customers who also shopped for this" link and highly recommended on a listmania list.I took it on holiday but I just didn't really enjoy these stories. I read about seven of them and gave up. I found the stories had dated badly and that the tales of relationships lacked resolution/conclusion. Is that it? I found myself saying at the end of each one - they seemed very slight tales or entirely predictable compared to many of those of her peers such as Somerset Maugham.Notfor me.
