THE DAY OF THE LOCUST by Nathanael West

THE DAY OF THE LOCUST

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.
