Dorothy Parker's first writing success came from selling verses to the editor of Vogue magazine. She then was offered a job writing captions for the publication. Vogue editor Frank Crowninshield also edited Vanity Fair and hired Parker for that magazine. There she worked with Robert Benchley and others known as the "Algonquin Round Table." Her first book of satirical verse, Enough Rope, was published in 1926. It included the oft-quoted couplet, "Men seldom make passes / At girls who wear glasses." She later worked for The New Yorker, writing short stories and book reviews.
