Dorothy Parker Drank Here
Ellen Meister, author of Dorothy Parker Drank Here (Putnam, February 24) held a launch event Tuesday night at New York City's Algonquin Hotel, the literary landmark where the book is set. The novel reimagines Dorothy Parker as an apparition who's been wandering the hotel for 40 years, hoping to convince a drinking buddy to join her in limbo rather than disappear into the eternal white light. Meister also runs a popular Dorothy Parker Facebook page.
