The Day of the Locust: A Martos Graphic Production Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this new visual interpretation of Nathanael Wests classic tale, renowned as one of the most penetrating novels ever written about Hollywood, sinister black-and-white illustrations bring the text to life. The Day of the Locust is a dark comedic fable of morality and desperation, set in the center of the American film industry during the Great Depression. Regarded as a cult classic, this novel reveals Wests gift for striking insight and his darkly humorous prose. The stark, startling depictions of the milieu and the characters give new life to this story, which gets to the heart of a society of alienated individuals who have come to Hollywood in the hopes of fulfilling their dreams.
