Tales from Hollywood

Hampton, Christopher


1st Edition
Soft cover

Printed wrappers. INSCRIBED (“For Tony, all best wishes”) and dated (1.ix.83) by the author to title page. Paperback original. *** A fictional portrait of 1940s Hollywood about real-life expats Thomas and Heinrich Mann, Bertolt Brecht and Austro-Hungarian-born playwright and novelist Odon von Horvath (who in reality died in 1938 and never set foot in America). “The play both offers a vivid picture of wartime Hollywood where literary legends became studio hacks, and sharply counterpoints European experience with America’s “tragic innocence”.” (Michael Billingdon)
