New York: The Viking Press, 1970. First printing.
In the late 1920s and early '30s, Dorothy Parker wrote a series of pieces in
The New Yorker
under the heading Constant Reader.
She praised what she valued, but could not resist turning her considerable wit against anything she found inferior.
31 of the original 46 pieces are gathered here, for the first time in book form, ranging from serious reviews to absurd flights of sometimes cruel humor.
Hardcover in jacket, with previous owner name to first end page.
