Essential Parker: Includes Big Blonde; Mrs. Post Enlarges on Etiquette; HorsieEssential Parker: Includes Big Blonde; Mrs. Post Enlarges on Etiquette; Horsie by Dorothy Parker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A collection of three pieces by Dorothy Parker The heartbreaking story "Big Blonde" read by Cynthia Nixon is sympathetic even as the title character makes disastrous choices. The satirical review of Emily Post's book of etiquette read by Christine Baranski is biting and funny. Finally, "Horsie," a short story read by Baranski, is again sympathetic to characters in unfortunate circumstances. The whole collection serves as a great introduction to Parker's work.
