Alice Duer Miller (1874-1942) was an American writer and poet. As a novelist, she scored her first real success with Come out of the Kitchen in 1916. The story was made into a play and later the film Spring in Park Lane in 1948. She followed it with a series of other short novels, many of which were staged and (increasingly) made into films. Her marriage endured to the end of her life, but was not entirely tranquil. Her novel in verse Forsaking All Others (1933) about a tragic love affair, which many consider her greatest work, reflects this, though it is certainly not autobiographical. Her other works include Modern Obstacle (1903), The Blue Arch (1910), Are Women People? (1915), Ladies Must Live (1917), Wings in the Night (1918), The Happiest Time of Their Lives (1918), The Charm School (1919), and The Beauty and the Bolshevist (1920).
