Movie critic Violet Epps must learn to stand up for herself and to speak as forcefully in real life as she does in her reviews. During an evening at the Algonquin Hotel, Violet unleashes the ghost of the renowned wit Dorothy Parker, Violet's role model and the one "person" who just might be able to help Violet find her dormant self-confidence. Narrator Angela Brazil is wonderful with dialogue, but overly emotive during periods of narrative, making for an uneven listening experience. Her drama is preferable to a flat rendering of the text, but the constant pathos she inserts into her voice lessens the impact of the emotional scenes.
