Yesterday's literary birthday girl, Dorothy Parker, lived a remarkable life — in good and bad ways.
For example, no matter your opinion on the morality of communism, you probably wouldn't consider being investigated by the FBI for supposedly being a Communist to be an enjoyable thing.
But that's what Parker experienced, and so her birthday yesterday had Literary Hub thinking about that particular event.
