Kevin Fitzpatrick discusses and signs Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide at Book Soup
Few writers have earned Dorothy Parker’s reputation for drinking as much or as hard, and fewer still have achieved her notorious skill at wisecracking wit. Kevin C. Fitzpatrick, president of the Dorothy Parker Society, gives us an intoxicating new look at the doyenne of the ripping riposte through the lens she most preferred: the bottom of a glass. A bar book for Parker enthusiasts and literary tipplers alike, Under the Table offers a unique take on Parker, the infamous Algonquin Round Table, and the Jazz Age by profiling and celebrating the drinks that she, her bitter friends, and sweetest enemies enjoyed and discussed. The signing begins at 4 p.m. This event will be preceded by a two hour tour of Dorothy Parker’s former homes and haunts in Hollywood and Beverly Hills ending with the event at Book Soup. For more info, please visit TicketWeb and the “Jazz Age LA Tours & the Dorothy Parker Society: Dorothy Parker’s Los Angeles Tour” listing. www.booksoup.com
