Underneath the wit, Dorothy Parker was a tortured soul

Bill Eichenberger's book review of The Portable Dorothy Parker by biographer Marion Meade, in Sunday April 2nd's The Columbus Dispatch, was sent to us by a reader.
She is credited with numerous puns, including, upon the occasion of her abortion, "It serves me right for putting all my eggs in one bastard."

But behind the lacerating wit and tossed-off lines was a writer of seriousness, compelled toward love but incapable of it, obsessed by suicide but incapable of it.
