Collected Together For the First Time

"The Algonquin was a refuge for the brightest authors, editors, critics, columnists, artists, financiers, composers, directors, producers and actors of the times. The dining-room corner was a hot bed of raconteurs and conversationalists."
-Harpo Marx

In Jazz Age New York City, no literary lights burned more brightly than those of the legendary Algonquin Round Table. Now between covers for the first time is a collection of writing by 16 members of the group, an all-star gathering that took 90 years to come together. Many of these pieces have never been published before; plucked from private family collections and "lost" pieces from obscure periodicals.

● Humor pieces by Robert Benchley, Franklin P. Adams, Heywood Broun, Frank Sullivan and Donald Ogden Stewart.
● Criticism from Dorothy Parker, George S. Kaufman and Robert E. Sherwood.
● Short fiction by Laurence Stallings and Pulitzer Prize-winners Edna Ferber and Margaret Leech.
● Journalism from Alexander Woollcott, Ruth Hale and Deems Taylor.
● Poetry by Adams, Marc Connelly, Dorothy Parker and John V. A. Weaver.

With a foreword by Nat Benchley.
