The Lit'ry Life: Dorothy Parker's New York (and Hollywood)

The Dorothy Parker Society of New York's site is essentially a history of the writer's life in New York and her time as a member of the palaverous Algonquin Round Table. You get a visual tour of her homes, literary hangouts (where she palled around with fellow writers like Robert Benchley) and favorite speakeasies. Parker eventually moved Hollywood to write movies, and another visual tour explores the places she lived and frequented (the real Dollywood). There is an audio archive featuring Parker reading favorite poems, including Men and One Perfect Rose, and info on the organization's activities, including a newsletter and details on the annual Parkerfest thrown in her memory. <>
