9780143105312: The Ladies of the Corridor (Penguin Classics)

One of the foremost humorists in literature, Dorothy Parker drew from the dark side of her imagination to pen The Ladies of the Corridor. Loosely based on Parkerís life, it is a searing drama about women living on their own in a New York residence hotel. With husbands dead and children, if any, too busy for aging parents, the ladies are empty-nesters struggling with lives that have lost their centers. Co-written with famed Hollywood playwright Arnaud díUsseau, The Ladies of the Corridor is a frank meditation on the limitations of a womanís life that teems with Parkerís signature wit.

About the Author:

Dorothy Parker was born in West End, New Jersey, in 1893. Famous for her spoken wit, she showed the same trenchant commentary in her book reviews for The New Yorker and Esquire and in her poems and sketches. Her collection of poems included Not So Deep as a Well and Enough Rope, which became a bestseller; and her collections of stories included Here Lies. She also collaborated with Elmer Rice on a play, Close Harmony and with Arnaud d'Usseau on the play the Ladies of the Corridor. Dorothy Parker died in 1967.

Arnaud díUsseau (1916Ė1990) was a notable playwright, screenwriter, and short story writer
