It's official. My new book--the prequel to Farewell, Dorothy Parker--will be published by Putnam on February 19! (I've been working on this a while, but it's exciting to know I'm in the queue. This is when it starts to feel real.)

I can't reveal too much about the story at this point, except to say that the ghost of Dorothy Parker is once again the main character, and that most of the action takes place at the Algonquin Hotel. Dorothy Parker Drank Here will be my fifth published novel.

If you haven't yet read Farewell, Dorothy Parker, I hope you'll want to remedy that soon. If you buy the trade paperback edition, you're guaranteed to get a signed copy, no matter where you order from. It's also available in ebook and audio versions. Here are some links:

Paperback: Amazon • Barnes & Noble • Books-A-Million • IndieBound • Walmart

Ebook: Kindle • Nook • Kobo • iTunes 

Audio: Amazon • Audible B&N   BAM  iTunes


"I loved it ... Meister has caught the nuance and language of what I imagine to be the consummate Dorothy Parker."

"Delicious entertainment." 
                    —Cleveland Plain Dealer

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

"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
