For women, middle-aged or older, preferably for those already disillusioned. For those, four stars maybe. ( )

purchased 11.1.91 - possibly in Honolulu - as there is a menu from the Royal Hawaiian as bookmark ( )

Enjoyed most of her stories..wish she had written an autobiography. ( )

Famous for her one-liners/zingers, Parker is typically referred to as a "wit" which always conjures up for me some sort of light-hearted banter setting up for some ultimate punchline*.

This definitely was not the case for Parker's short stories which are more like domestic psychological thrillers, be it the toxic relationships buoyed along by societal expectations (her shrewd insight into such tumultuous relationships reminds me of Yates and makes me wonder how personal a research she must have conducted) or a racist-and-don't-know-it at a house party.

Add to this Parker's ability to present to you one side of a character's story (some stories are literally just one person's side of the conversation) yet show you the entire intricate minefield of relationships in the narrative. Each story is an exercise in holding your breath and slowly shuddering and exhaling at the end.

*which I found was the case for the poems which didn't grab me as much as the stories did. I also found her cultural reviews dated less accessible, it feels necessary to be in that cultural zeitgeist while reading them. For the stories alone, the collection would be five stars. ( )

I think Parker said it best in, “There's a hell of a distance between wise-cracking and wit. Wit has truth in it; wise-cracking is simply calisthenics with words." I think I adore her writing so much because there's so much truth in her wit and the only calisthenics you experience while reading her is unabated laughter. ( )
