The Day of the Locust

  • Type: Book
This is the Hollywood that needs telling about. It's a fine job. I got a kick out of it! Dashiell Hammett
I love that book, I love the '30s and Sunset Boulevard. David Lynch
It's brilliant, savage and arresting - a truly good novel. Dorothy Parker
The book ... has scenes of extraordinary power. Especially I was impressed by the pathological crowd at the premiere, the character and handling of the aspirant actress and the uncanny almost medieval feeling of some of his Hollywood background, set off by those vividly drawn grotesques. F Scott Fitzgerald
