Author, poet, screenwriter, and outstanding member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table, Dorothy Parker was known for her quick wit, keen observations, and remarkable insight into the human condition. Regarded as brilliant, but known to be an alcoholic and often depressed, Parker´s 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 today´s 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´´, her O. Henry Award winner ´´Big Blonde´´, several other short stories, and, unlike other audio collections, some of her review work. 1. Language: English.

Jason Haverty is looking forward to the fall horse drive, until his boss and uncle inform him that one of the new cowboys, who is coming to help, will be riding his favorite horse. His annoyance is furthered when the cowboy turns out to be a cowgirl - a quick-witted and confident blonde beauty. Trying to avoid her doesn´t work. The more time he spends with her, the more an unexpected protectiveness toward her grows. Bobby Jo´s Texas upbringing taught her to give just as good as she gets, a quality Jason finds frustrating, and all the more endearing, in this southern belle. When an accident on the trail places her in possible danger, Jason realizes she means more to him than he thought. The question is, does she feel the same? 1. Language: English. Narrator: John R.

A 40-year-old actress tries to make a comeback - but death keeps getting in the way Diana Poole was the last of the starlets. A vibrant blonde with a quick wit and sharp intelligence, she was on her way to the top when Colin Hudson changed her mind about being famous. He was the finest screenwriter in Hollywood, and loved her well enough that she lost the acting bug forever. When he dies, he leaves Diana lonely, broke, and verging on middle age - a combination that’s difficult anywhere, but toxic in Hollywood. Thankfully, Diana still knows how to play the game. Working her old contacts and hustling for a job, she contends with crazy young ingénues, lecherous studio heads, and the cutthroat attention of her fellow fading beauties. But there’s an added twist: On and off the set, she can’t help stumbling over dead bodies. Tragedy follows Diana Poole, and in Hollywood, tragedy comes cheap. 1. Language: English.
