Regarded as brilliant, but known to be an alcoholic and often depressed, Parkers work pushes all buttons at once: humor, anger, love, pity and everything in between ... she pulled no punches, writing with pure, unadulterated passion- her work is timeless and as pertinent to todays society as it was to that of the time she wrote.Among the gems included in this collection are her first published short story, Such a Pretty Little Picture and her O. Henry Award winner Big Blonde, several other short stories, and, unlike other audio collections, some of her review work.Includes:Big BlondeReview of Emily PostDusk before FireworksReview of RedemptionBut the One on the RightHorsieDiary of a New York LadyThe GameJust a Little OneThe Bolt Behind the BlueValedictory ReviewSuch a Pretty Little PictureLady With a LampThe WaltzCousin LarryA Telephone Call Performed by Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Alfre Woodard, & Shirley Booth
