Product Description

Miss Lonelyhearts - compared by Flannery O'Connor to Faulkner's As I Lay Dying - is about a newspaper reporter assigned to write the agony column, but, caught up in a vision of suffering, he seeks a way out (through Art, Sex, Religion), only to be rebuffed at every turn by his cynical editor Shrike. The Day of the Locust - considered by many to be the finest novel ever written about Hollywood - revolves around Tod Hackett, who hopes for a career in set design only to discover the boredom and emptiness of Hollywood's inhabitants. In the end, only blood will serve. 208p.
