Writers

Dorothy Parker

“They sicken of the calm who know the storm.” – Dorothy Parker (1893-1967). If you could follow your instincts, make decisions impulsively, without even considering the consequences of tomorrow, you might be able to understand the life of writer Dorothy Parker. Her mother died when she was a child and her father was, …unfortunately, well off enough to pay for nannies and the best schools, keeping him distant from her upbringing. By the age of 20, her father had died and she was ultimately alone. Although she was known for her wit, she claimed it was only a facade. She tried to fill her loneliness with affairs which only made her lonelier. She attempted suicide unsuccessfully several times in her life, yet ironically lived to be 73 dying of natural causes in 1967. She left her entire estate to Martin Luther King, Jr., although she had never met him.

One of her most celebrated works was published “Big Blonde”, a haunting story that chronicles the life of Hazel Morse, and is considered to be somewhat biographical.
