"Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live." With that kind of an attitude, it's easy to understand why we love Dorothy Parker. An enlightened satirist who led a painful and often lonely life, Parker has been the object of more interest to us than any of those other Algonquin Roundtable folks. At this site, you'll find a good bio, plus links to online archives of her work and other resources.
