'The Day of the Locust' concerns Tod Hackett, an aspiring painter working as a set designer, and his interactions with various characters scrabbling on the fringes of Hollywood. The title (and while we're at it, let's raise a hat to the greatness of both book titles) introduces the idea of destruction and the novel is filled with several quietly nightmarish images of a land and lives laid waste.
Publishing these two short novels together gives us a tightly bound little package of sharp, pungent and concentrated writing. They poke a stick at the animal American life and the destructive forces compressed within it.

I just reviewed the film of the book directed by John Schesinger. I loved both but I'd recommend that anyone drawn into the nightmare vision of the movie reads the book as well. Read morePublished on 15 Feb. 2014 by Anna C
