In the spring of 1937, Daniel Fuchs, twenty-seven years old and the author of three acclaimed novels of Brooklyn tenement .
In the spring of 1937, Daniel Fuchs, twenty-seven years old and the author of three acclaimed novels of Brooklyn tenement life, came to Hollywood to bang out a treatment of one of his short stories. His thirteen-week contract turned into a permanent residence - and a lifelong love affair. The Golden West collects, for the first time, the best of Fuchs's writings about the movie business, from a novice screenwriter's anxious diaries (1937-38) to a fifty-year veteran's mellow memoirs (1989).
The Golden West' is first-rate, worth placing beside Fitzgerald's and West's evocations of the Hollywood frenzy . Fuchs knows the facts of Hollywood, but his interest is in the demons beneath.
The Golden West' is first-rate, worth placing beside Fitzgerald's and West's evocations of the Hollywood frenzy - that lunatic desperation that keeps these people, their hearts eaten away by success and memory, clinging to the slopes to avoid falling into bankruptcy yet still dreaming that, with a yank here, a twist there, they'll again make a cool million. The action of 'West of the Rockies' is seen throughout as a sort.
