Still time to grab a signed copy of FAREWELL, DOROTHY PARKER

"Meister skillfully translates the rapier-like wit of the Algonquin Round Table to modern-day New York ... [with] pathos, nuanced characters, plenty of rapid-fire one-liners, and a heart-rending denouement."—Publishers Weekly


Readers of this blog know that I spent several weeks signing the entire first printing of FAREWELL, DOROTHY PARKER in trade paperback. My publisher tells me there are still signed books left, but supplies are getting low. So if you'd like one, please order asap.

If you order it this month, I promise that you will receive one these signed, first printing collectibles with a gold sticker. (Your online order won't indicate that it's signed, but as long as you buy it in paperback, you're good.)

FAREWELL, DOROTHY PARKER is also in stores, so you can call your local bookstore to see if they have it in stock.

And if you want to read it right away on your e-reader, you can do that, too.

 "Hooray for Ellen Meister! In a miracle of fine writing with Farewell, Dorothy Parker, a novel of infinite charm, she has brought the inimitable, witty and acerbic Dorothy Parker back to gin swilling life." —BookTrib

"Meister honors Dorothy Parker, her still-fresh political convictions, and her body of witty, insightful work in this very nice literary romp ... I loved it ... Meister has caught the nuance and language of what I imagine to be the consummate Dorothy Parker."BookReporter.com 

 "In this funny yet tender homage to Dorothy Parker, [Meister] resurrects the iconic wit of the literary legend." —Library Journal 

“[Meister] reveals the pathos behind the pith, and she instructs readers about the enduring legacy of a writer who produced not just ‘scathing reviews, clever jokes, quotable poetry, and insightful short stories’ but also championed social causes. Classic Parker zingers sprinkled throughout the novel add sparkle.” —Washington Post

Very funny! All Ellen's must be alike. The one I know is just as funny, was given away at birth, searched and found her mother when she was in her thirties, only to find out that she is a niece or close relative to the Three Stooges.
