"Forschungen eines Hundes" ist eine 1922 entstandene, breit angelegte Erzählung mit Fabelcharakter von Franz Kafka, die postum veröffentlicht wurde. Wie der Titel (von Max Brod) aussagt, geht es um die Erkenntnissuche eines Hundes. Diese ist zum Scheitern verurteilt, weil sie grundlegende Fakten, nämlich die Existenz von Menschen, nicht erkennen kann.

Meadow ist sechs. Krank vor Sehnsucht nach der Tochter, mit der er seit der Trennung von Laura nur sehr wenig Zeit verbringen darf, setzt Eric sich mit ihr ins Auto und fährt einfach los, immer weiter, bis die kleine Reise mehr und mehr zur Flucht gerät - der zweiten in seinem Leben. Niemand weiß, dass er zwei Identitäten hat: die Erik Schroders, des Immigranten aus der DDR, und die Eric Kennedys mit der frei erfundenen, uramerikanischen Biographie. Erst im Gefängnis bricht Eric sein Schweigen. Er schreibt seiner Exfrau und erzählt ihr von seiner Vergangenheit, erzählt ihr von den gestohlenen Tagen mit Meadow - eine der bezauberndsten und ungewöhnlichsten Mädchenfiguren der Gegenwartsliteratur.

Dorothy Parker biographer Marion Meade shares insight into the last days in the life of Dorothy Parker—the horrible and the hilarious—including her colorful friendship with Lillian Hellman, and the bizarre afterlife of Parker’s remains from a file cabinet on Wall Street to a small burial site by the NAACP office in Baltimore. The Volney was a dignified residence hotel, favored by older women and their dogs, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Dorothy Parker died there, of a heart attack, on June 7, 1967. She was seventy-three and had been famous for almost half a century. As befitted a much-loved humorist, poet, and storywriter, the New York Times announced her exit in a front-page obituary. This was followed by a star-studded memorial service, also reported in the paper, which was attended by some 150 of her friends and admirers. More than twenty years later, on October 20, 1988, Parker was buried in Baltimore, in a memorial garden at the national headquarters of the NAACP. Why did it take more than two decades for Dorothy Parker to get a decent burial? What accounts for her macabre Edgar Allan Poe–style ending, arguably one of the most ghoulish in modern literary history? And just what happened to her during those twenty-one years? Dorothy Parker biographer Marion Meade draws from new research to portray Parker in her last years and last days, with an emphasis on her posthumous existence. The story also features Parker’s enduring friendship of over thirty years with playwright and screenwriter Lillian Hellman, along with other notable figures in Parker’s circle, including Dashiell Hammett and John O’Hara. Always riotous and occasionally ghastly, The Last Days is utterly and completely Dorothy Parker.

Dorothy Parker captured early twentieth century American society like no one else could. She was a masterful observer of character, a witty, sharply exact composer of dialogue and a poignant reader of the subtleties of relationship. In these five stories, of relationships strained by ill-will, social distance or circumstance, all her strengths are clear.
