Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The movie-making machinations of the title town are exposed in this thinly veiled roman a clef about a hard-drinking poet-novelist tamed screenwriter. Presumably based on his experiences writing the movie, "Barfly," Bukowski lays open the absurdity and egotism of the film industry from the worm's-eye view of a screenwriter....This novel is funny, and it moves quickly." Independent Publisher

Review:

"Bukowski depicts perfectly a business where your cheque is always in the post: the elation never lasts and rip-offs are standard practice....a superb snapshot of what filmmaking at the fag-end of the Hollywood dream is all about." Times Literary Supplement

Review:

"Charles Bukowski, West Coast poet and patron saint of drinking writers, or writing drinkers...has written a classic in the take-the-money-and-don't-run category of Hollywood fiction....this is fiction disguised thinly enough for even non-cinephiles to see through the pseudonyms." Molly Haskell, New York Times Book Review
