Signed copies of Farewell, Dorothy Parker are still available!


"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

Good news for anyone who wants a signed copy of Farewell, Dorothy Parker. I personally autographed every single copy of the trade paperback edition first printing. So no matter where you purchase it from--your local bookstore or online--you are guaranteed to get a signed book with a gold sticker on the cover.

Note that when you order it online there won't be any indication that it's autographed. But I promise you, from the bottom of my cramped fingers, that it is. Here are links for ordering this first edition trade paperback online:

Also note that you can start reading it right away on any ereader, though I haven't quite figured out how to sign those. Still, here are links for downloading: Kindle • Nook • Kobo • iTunes • Sony Reader

 "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." 

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

"Magical fun."Booklist 

 "The plot is tightly constructed and just when we are settling in for a predictable turn, it weaves left or right, giving the story yet one more twist .... The result is a charming book, especially for lovers of Ms. Parker, who get to spend some quality time with her." Neworld Review 

 "Meister captured Parker’s sarcasm, wit, and self deprecating voice extremely well. The book is well-written ... a fast-moving story."Westchester Guardian 

"A fun, spunky, tension-ridden but endearing tale ... absolutely delightful!"The Best Reviews

“[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

 "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
