Book Description

13 Dec 2013
The Girl From Hollywood was a contemporary novel (now reads as historical) originally serialized in Munsey's Magazine from June-November 1922. The ranch described is that of Edgar Rice Burroughs himself, but the story is about the Pennington family and the relationship they have with a Hollywood actress who comes to stay with them. Unlike most of Burroughs' work, this tale doesn't have a real hero, and the characters struggle with substance abuse.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Girl from Hollywood 14 Sep 2010
By Parisonn of Atlantis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This attempt by Burroughs to reach beyond his Tarzan and sci-fi stories largely fails because while the plot touches on the serious issues of drug addiction and sexual exploitation, his thinly-drawn characters and melodramatic contrivances remain at the "pulp" level. However, Burroughs' style remains highly readable, despite the clunky dialog, and he offers a diverting look at an unsavory fringe of the silent-movie industry.
