Dorothy Parker on narrative

"[N]arrative stories are the best, though my past stories make themselves stories by telling themselves through what people say. I haven’t got a visual mind. I hear things. But I’m not going to do those he-said, she-said things anymore, they’re over, honey, they’re over."
-- Dorothy Parker in an interview with Paris Review

It's unfortunate she sold her work short due to some fashion in narrative mode.
