This chapter focuses on Dorothy's post-high school years. After completing her studies at the Benjamin School for Girls and staying on awhile as an instructor in drama, she had various workaday jobs that seem an ill fit for her talents. For a while, she worked as a lab technician, an occupation that seems so uncharacteristic of her. At age twenty, Dorothy married Dr. Jack Wiener, a surgeon on the staff of Montefiore Hospital. In 1927, Dorothy eventually began collaborating with James McHugh, a partnership that would last almost a decade and would produce some of their most famous songs.
