    Parker, Dorothy

    Dorothy Parker (1893 – 1967) was an American author and critic known for her wit, who wrote for magazines such as Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. She was a founding member of the Algonquin Round Table but, following the breakup of the circle, Parker travelled to Hollywood to pursue screenwriting, where she was placed on the Hollywood Blacklist due to her left-leaning politics.
