Elaine Stritch Reads Dorothy Parker

I don’t usually purchase Audiobooks, but I’m getting this one! The NY Times describes: ‘When you hear it, it almost makes too much sense: Elaine Stritch reading the selected stories of Dorothy Parker (pictured). Two iconic New York broads known as much for their personas, at this point, as for their work. The recording was made in 1995, but never existed in digital form until now; rather, it was a sort of urban legend, the kind of thing a friend of a friend might have heard on cassette once and then raved about forever. One such fan was David Sedaris, who once described the tape in an interview as his favorite audiobook, prompting Penguin to reissue the stories.’
