This is an iconic novel that perfectly captures themes of
alienation and desperation that are just as relevant today as when
it was first published in 1939. 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
facade of Hollywood fades into the background, as Tod navigates
through the lonely and disenfranchised majority, encountering
beautiful actress Faye Greener, frustrated accountant Homer
Simpson, and a motley crew of cowboys, crooks, and stars on the wax
and wane. This is a classic study of early Hollywood, each page
sizzles with brutality and black humour, as life in the bristling,
parched underbelly growls towards a thundering climax.
