Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) is one of the most versatile writers of her time. Parker successfully wrote short stories, plays, poems, screen plays, reviews, and magazine articles and is well known for her sardonic and satirical writing style. In 1959 she was inducted into the highly selective American Academy of Arts and Letters.
The Dorothy Parker stamp was issued in West End, New Jersey, and is the tenth in the Literary Arts Series of stamps. The stamp contains a portrait of Parker and was designed by Greg Rudd.
