Dorothy Parker's dry wit is well served by polished actresses Cynthia Nixon and Christine Baranski. Nixon reads the first story, “Big Blonde,” with sympathy and tender anguish for the title character. Baranski shines in her performance of Parker's musings on Emily Post, perfectly enunciating each delicious bit of humorous sarcasm. Baranski skillfully reads another short story, “Horsie,” with the perfect balance of charm and exasperation. The skills of these two fine actresses and Parker's notable talent for commentary on the human condition create a highly entertaining recording and a satisfying tribute to Parker's gift for words. Only an hour, this recording will delight Parker fans and create new ones. R.F. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
