Dorothy Parker Drank Here

Ellen Meister

The acid-tongued Dorothy Parker is back and haunting the halls of Algonquin with her piercing wit, audacious voice, and unexpectedly tender wisdom. Heavenly peace? No, thank you. Dorothy Parker would rather wander the famous halls of the Algonquin Hotel, drink in hand, searching for someone, anyone, who will keep her company on the side of eternity. After forty years she thinks she's found the perfect candidate in Ted Shriver, a brilliant literary voice of the 1970s, silenced early in a promising career by the devastating plagiarism scandal. Now a prickly recluse, he hides away in the old hotel slowly dying from cancer, which her refuses to treat. If she can convince him to sign the infamous guest book of Percy Coates, Dorothy Parker might be able to persuade the jaded writer to spurn the white light with her. Ted, however, might be the only person living or dead who's more stubborn then Parker, and he rejects her proposal outright. When a young TV producer, Norah Wolfe, enters the hotel in search of Ted Shriver, Parker sees another opportunity to get what she wants. Instead, she and Norah manage to uncover such startling secrets about Ted's past that the future changes for all of them.
