Quote of the Day (Dorothy Parker, on an Author Who ‘Reverts to Tripe’)

“That gifted entertainer, the Countess of Oxford and Asquith, author of ‘The Autobiography of Margot Asquith’ (four volumes, neatly boxed, suitable for throwing purposes), reverts to tripe in a new book deftly entitled ‘Lay Sermons.’” —Algonquin Roundtable wit Dorothy Parker (1893-1967), “Recent Books by Constant Reader” (identifying name used by Dorothy Parker), The New Yorker, Oct. 22, 1927
