The latest round of raves for Mary-Louise Parker is not for her acting, but for her writing. A Golden Globe winner for the TV series "Weeds" and HBO film "Angels in America" and a Tony winner for "Proof," she has for years been contributing essays to Esquire, The Riveter and other magazines. Drinking coffee at a Brooklyn cafe on a warm winter morning, the 51-year-old Parker – who lives in Brooklyn with her two children, one of whom she had with actor Billy Crudup – clearly favors talking about writing over the discussion of acting, or, especially, her personal life.The collection's titular essay "Dear Doctor" describes a near-death emergency and hospitalization.Parker is an admirer of poets Mark Strand and Philip Levine, among others, and of short story writers Lorrie Moore and Deborah Eisenberg.
