Dorothy Parker's Sweet Release of Death - Actress poses as Dorothy Parker, with a cigarette casually hanging out of her mouth. Her dress is black with a conservative collar, her hair is styled in an old-fashioned French twist with a fringe. Her arms are crossed and her attitude is heavy, defiant and a little bit cheeky.

Dorothy Parker's Sweet Release of Death

Poet. Alcoholic. Aspiring corpse. Dorothy Parker is a lot of things. And when the whole of 1920's New York knows you as the funniest woman to hold a martini, the pressure to write a witty suicide note is unbearable. Entertaining for Parker fans and enlightening for newcomers, everyone should spend time with the legend who coined the phrases 'one-night-stand', 'queer', and 'what the hell'. Throw in a few songs, a shady past and a vendetta against Winnie-The-Pooh, and you've got a party with Parker.
