Dorothy Parker (18931967) was an American poet, critic, and satirist, known for her [[DeadpanSnarker biting wit]]. Her written works specialized in cynicism related to love and romance, how they don't seem to work in practice as they do in idealistic works, and how even people who know this still want love and romance. Some of her shorter works are flat-out memorized in certain circles, and her influence remains in the PopCulturalOsmosis for tropes about non-ideal love.

Added DiffLines:

She's also famous for an alleged incident where she met President UsefulNotes/CalvinCoolidge, a notorious example of TheQuietOne, at a party and told him "Mr. President, I just bet my friend that I could get you to say more than two words." Coolidge looked at her and said, "You lose." Parker would later get the last laugh, however: when Coolidge passed away, her immediate reaction to the news was [[TakeThat "How can they tell?"]]

Added DiffLines:

* CausticCritic: She was famous for this. In 1920, she was fired from ''Vanity Fair'', because her savage theater reviews offended powerful producers too often.
