The Portable Dorothy Parker - Margot Avery as Dorothy Parker

The Portable Dorothy Parker

New York City: 1943.  Dorothy Parker, famed wit, writer, and critic, is on the warpath. Viking Press is about to publish a collection of Dorothy's poems and short stories, and she must make the selections. Now.

As Dorothy sorts through her works, she reminisces about her life: her famous friends (Lillian Hellman, F Scott Fitzgerald, and, especially, Ernest Hemingway), her role in the famous Algonquin Round Table, the founding of The New Yorker, and her many loves and heartbreaks.

Has it all been worth it? Has she made her mark as a writer, or is she merely clever?
