Library Journal

The great Parker gets the red-carpet treatment as her "Portable" is bumped up to a "Deluxe Edition" (go, Dottie!). The text includes her short fiction, poems, book and theater reviews, letters, and more. A wonderful extra is the quickie biography in simple drawings adorning the front and rear inside cover flaps. Though probably better known today for her one-liners, Parker should be taken seriously as one of the great writers, female or otherwise. This beautifully executed edition does her justice.
