Fuchs not only wrote screenplays, he also wrote fiction and personal essays, mainly for The New Yorker. The Golden West collects, for the first time, the best of his writings about Hollywood, from a novice screenwriter's anxious diaries (1937-38) to a fifty-year veteran's mellow memoirs (1989). The centerpiece of the book is a haunting short novel, set in the late 1950s, about a half-mad woman, immature and incapable, who is, despite herself, a star. Fuchs is the Bellow of the Brown Derby, the Chekhov of the back lot.
