    Description
    Information
    These two novellas demonstrate the fragility of the American dream, from two very different perspectives. In The Day of the Locust, talented young artist Tod Hackett has been brought to Hollywood to work in the design department of a major studio. He discovers a surreal world of tarnished dreams, where violence and hysteria lurk behind even the most glittering fagade. Liberty and freedom have been turned into a bizarre nightmare in The Dream Life of Balso Snell, which focuses on the personal despair and disintegration of its protagonist, the poet Balso.
    'The Day of the Locust... remains the best of the Hollywood novels, a nightmare vision of humanity destroyed by its obsession with film.'
    J. G. Ballard, Sunday Times
