Creative Quotations from Dorothy Parker
|Dorothy Parker was born in West End, New Jersey. She
was educated at the Blessed Sacrament Convent, in New York City.
Between 1916 and 1920 she was a drama and literary critic for the magazines Vogue and Vanity Fair, in New York City. She then became a free-lance writer.
Among her works are books of verse, short stories, and sketches; her poems and short stories alike are characterized by a style that is often bitingly humorous and sardonic. Her writings are concerned mainly with love and with the frustrations and contradictions of modern life.
Her books of verse include Death and Taxes (1931) and Not So Deep as a Well (1936); among her collections of short stories are Laments for the Living (1930) and After Such Pleasures (1933). Constant Reader (posthumously pub. 1970) comprises book reviews she wrote for the New Yorker magazine from 1927 to 1933 under the pseudonym Constant Reader.
