Vintage Q&A …

… Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 13, Dorothy Parker. (Hat tip, David Tothero.)

The plays closed and the producers, who were the big boys—Dillingham, Ziegfeld, and Belasco—didn’t like it, you know. Vanity Fair was a magazine of no opinion, but I had opinions. So I was fired. And Mr. Sherwood and Mr. Benchley resigned their jobs. It was all right for Mr. Sherwood, but Mr. Benchley had a family—two children. It was the greatest act of friendship I’d known.
