The acid-tongued Dorothy Parker is back and haunting the
halls of the Algonquin with her piercing wit, audacious
voice, and unexpectedly tender wisdom.
Heavenly peace? No, thank you. Dorothy Parker would rather
wander the famous halls of the Algonquin Hotel, drink in
hand, searching for someone, anyone, who will keep her
company on this side of eternity.
After forty years she thinks sheâ€™s found the perfect
candidate in Ted Shriver, a brilliant literary voice of the
1970s, silenced early in a promising career by a devastating
plagiarism scandal. Now a prickly recluse, he hides away in
the old hotel slowly dying of cancer, which he refuses to
treat. If she can just convince him to sign the infamous
guestbook of Percy Coates, Dorothy Parker might be able to
persuade the jaded writer to spurn the white light with her.
Ted, however, might be the only person living or dead whoâ€™s
more stubborn than Parker, and he rejects her proposal
When a young, ambitious TV producer, Norah Wolfe, enters the
hotel in search of Ted Shriver, Parker sees another
opportunity to get what she wants. Instead, she and Norah
manage to uncover such startling secrets about Tedâ€™s past
that the future changes for all of them.
