Dorothy Parker’s biting wit made her a legend, but it also masked her lonely struggle with depression. A member of the Algonquin Round Table group of writers, she wrote criticism for Vogue
, Vanity Fair
, and later the New Yorker
. During the 1930s Parker moved to Hollywood, where she worked on such films as A Star Is Born
, for which she won an Academy Award.
