From the ROADS Classics series, which aren't just an enthralling read, they are also beautifully designed works of art featuring individual photographs or illustrations that represent major themes from the stories within. A real treat for all book lovers.

A classic study of early Hollywood, each page sizzles with brutality and black humour, as life in the bristling, parched underbelly growls towards a thundering climax. Aspiring young artist Tod Hackett arrives in Los Angeles with grand ambitions and begins working for the movie studios. However, reality soon sets in and the glittering façade of Hollywood fades into the background, as Tod navigates through the lonely and disenfranchised majority, encountering beautiful actress Fay Greener, frustrated accountant Homer Simpson, and a motley crew of cowboys, crooks, and stars on the wax and wane. A classic study of early Hollywood, each page sizzles with brutality and black humour, as life in the bristling, parched underbelly growls towards a thundering climax.
