Day of the Locust and the Dream Life of Balso Snell by Nathanael West
Book DescriptionTod Hackett is a brilliant young artist - and a man in danger of losing his heart. Brought to an LA studio as a set-designer, he is soon caught up in a fantasy world where the cult of celebrity rules. But when he becomes besotted by the beautiful Faye, an aspiring actress and occasional call-girl, his dream rapidly becomes a nightmare. For, with little in the way of looks and no money to buy her time, Tod's desperate passion can only lead to frustration, disillusionment and rage...

The four novels gathered here, Miss Lonelyhearts, A Cool Million, The Day of the Locust and The Dream Life of Balso Snell, constitute the complete longer works of one the most brilliant and original American writers.
US Kirkus Review » The author of Miss Lonely Hearts has written in this new novel, as pointless and inane a book as I have encountered for some time. The story, if such it can be called, consists of flashes of Hollywood's lunatic fringe who careen around, sometimes drunk, sometimes sex driven, sometimes just screwball. There is no plot - merely scenes here and there showing up Hollywood nuts and freaks, rather than glamor girls. (Kirkus Reviews)
