Dorothy Parker

a.k.a. Dorothy (nee) Rothschild Parker

Author Code: ADOT

Born: Aug. 22, 1893 - Long Branch, New Jersey, USA

Died: Jun. 7, 1967 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at Miss Dana's School, a New Jersey finishing school, Dorothy began to write poetry while still in school. Following graduation in 1911, she played piano at a dance school for a period before getting her first poem published by Vanity Fair in 1914. Later that year she was hired by Vogue magazine as an editorial assistant. In 1917, she married Edwin Pond Parker II, A Wall Street stockbroker, but they were later separated when he entered military service in World War I. In 1918, she joined Vanity Fair as a theater critic and developed a reputation as a wit. Unfortunately, when she took her critical wit too far and offended some patrons of the magazine, Vanity Fair fired her in 1920. For the next few years she continued writing and contributing until 1925 when the New Yorker was established. She was appointed to the board of editors and began a hugely successful career. Her first volume of poetry, Enough Rope appeared in 1926 and was extremely popular. Her column of reviews was collected and published posthumously in 1970 as the Constant Reader. In 1929, she won the O. Henry Award for the best short story, Big Blonde. She became a vociferous opponent of the death penalty during the Sacco-Vanzetti affair in1927. She married Alan Campbell in 1934 and the couple went to Hollywood for further success in screenwriting. Together with Robert Carson, they were nominated for an Oscar in 1937 for A Star Is Born. For the next decade Parker worked on scripts while becoming more and more active in left-wing causes. By 1950, she was a listed Communist and was blacklisted during the McCarthy era. She returned to New York in 1952. In 1957, she joined Esquire magazine as a reviewer, but her work was affected by her reliance on alcohol. Campbell committed suicide in 1963 and Parker died of a heart attack four years later. Her works include Sunset Gun (1928), Laments for the Living (1930), Death and Taxes (1931), After Such Pleasures (1933),Not So Deep As a Well (1936) and Here Lies (1939).
