Dorothy Parker (August 22, 1893 June 7, 1967) was an American writer and poet best known for her caustic wit, wisecracks, and sharp eye for 20th century Urban foibles. Also known as Dot or Dottie, Parker was born Dorothy Rothschild in the West End district of Long Branch, New Jersey where her parents had a summer home. She liked to say that her parents got her back to their Manhattan apartment shortly after Labor Day, so she can be called a true New Yorker.
