He gives a good deal of the grim side, the rawness of America with its increasing industrialization and its laying waste of national treasures, the mad side of Hollywood, thee literary infighting in New York. We meet Scott Fitzgerald, Edna Millay, there are vignettes of H.L. Menken and Dorothy Parker, E.E. Cummings , Dos Pasos and Eugene O'Neill. With nine B&W plates .Text is clean, tight and unmarked.
