Description
For more than a decade following World War I, the dining room of New York's Algonquin Hotel was a hub of letters and wit. Cocktails were swilled as the writers, humorists, actors, and critics of the self-named "Vicious Circle" bantered, quipped, and poked fun at culture, the arts, and one another, seated around what came to be known as the Algonquin Round Table. This lively tribute is packed with quotes from such wits as Dorothy Parker ("The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue"), Alexander Woollcott ("All the things I like to do are either immoral, illegal, or fattening"), and George S. Kaufmann ("Satire is something that closes on Saturday night").
