THE MANHATTAN GIRLS A Novel of Dorothy Parker and Her Friends

by | Read by Lisa Flanagan

Historical Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Lisa Flanagan superbly narrates this audiobook based on history and enhanced by the engaging dialogue of a fascinating foursome in the 1920s. The characters' relationships rival the female friendships made famous in "Sex and the City." The story revolves around the legendary writer Dorothy Parker and her friends. The setting may be the Prohibition era, but women's rights issues relevant to today are highlighted as Dottie, Peggy, Winifred, and Jane navigate careers and love in New York City. Flanagan uses a lyrical cadence for Dottie's stories and a low mutter for her renowned one-liners. With the shifting perspectives of the four women, and real-life characters like Arnold Rothstein and Tallulah Bankhead, Flanagan uses every opportunity to stretch her voice.
