Dorothy Parker was born in West End, New Jersey, in an upper-middle-class family of mixed heritage. Estranged from her parents due to her dislike of her strict, devout stepmother, she read voraciously and wrote verse. Seeking a career in literature, she worked for Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Life, and was one of the founding editors of New Yorker. She wrote verse, plays, short fiction, and epigrams, as well as criticism and reviews; her caustic, celebrated wit reverberated from her own writing, as well as reports from the Algonquin Round Table, of which she was a founding member. With her second husband, Alan Campbell, she contributed to numerous Hollywood screenplays. Dorothy Parker was an active social reformer throughout her life, naming Martin Luther King, Jr., prominently in her will.
