Dorothy Parkers (USA. 1893-1967)
Here's an interesting writer, probably one of the very first who used the stream-of-consciousness technique (modernist writing). The story, however, is not one of my favorites. I chose it because it's got good language material for English learners! Listen to the story A Telephone Call at the Talking People Podcast
Listen to her poem "Resumé"
(this means "Currículo" in US American English), and if you like it, check out for more poems recorded by her here
