Here she is:
and here is one of her poems.
Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad -
Broke my brittle heart in two,
And that is very bad.
Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke:
And that, I think, is worse.
Dorothy Parker died at the age of seventy three.
She left her estate to Martin Luther King Jr.
Her ashes remained unclaimed for seventeen years.
