Summary


•One of the greatest books on Hollywood's glitzy artifice and its depressing underbelly

Aspiring young artist Tod Hackett arrives in Los Angeles with grand ambitions and begins working for the movie studios. However, reality soon sets in and the glittering façade of Hollywood fades into the background, as Tod navigates through the lonely and disenfranchised majority, encountering beautiful actress Fay Greener, frustrated accountant Homer Simpson, and a motley crew of cowboys, crooks, and stars on the wax and wane. A classic study of early Hollywood, each page sizzles with brutality and black humor, as life in the bristling, parched underbelly moves towards a thundering climax.

Author Biography

Nathanael West is often compared to his close friend F. Scott Fitzgerald, but the dark humor and muscularity of his work offers something distinct to modern readers, exploring as it does the artifice and the dark reality of the human experience in the face of infinite promise - also know as 'the American Dream'.
