The Comedy Writer


A Confederacy of Dunces meets The Player in an offbeat, sidesplittingly hilarious novel about making it against all odds in 1990s' Hollywood, by the co-writer/director of Dumb and Dumber.

Полное собрание стихотворений

«Полное собрание стихотворений» - произведение русского поэта, прозаика, драматурга и критика В. Я. Брюсова (1873 – 1924).*** Автор вошел в историю русской литературы как один из первых поэтов-символистов. Но он пробовал себя в разных жанрах: новелла, повесть, роман, научная статья. Многогранность - отличительная черта этого…

When Henry Halloran's girlfriend dumped him, his Boston-based life suddenly seemed pointless.He was thirty-two with a dead-end job, and nothing on the horizon.There was obviously only one place to go: Hollywood.

The Comedy Writer is the story of how Henry – armed with nothing more than a few ideas, a nothing-to-lose attitude, and the desire to be a screenwriter – joins myriad hopefuls in the City of Angels and achieves an L.A.kind of fame.From the surreal squalor of his one-room pad at the Blue Terrace apartments, he encounters nympho starlets, death-obsessed Rollerbladers, philosophical midgets, scruple-free producers, and an unforgettably psychotic roommate named Colleen.

Combining the mordant wit and insight of Nathanael West with the lyricism and irony of a postmodern Candide, The Comedy Writer is a bawdy romp around and through the dream factory, in which Henry learns that while talent and integrity may be relative terms, life does, after all, have meaning.

Sure to appeal to anyone who has ever dreamed of Hollywood success, who has found him- or herself a full-fledged adult without a clue for the future, or who ever thought Los Angeles might represent the end of modern civilization, The Comedy Writer is an incomparable comic tour de force marked by the kind of telling detail only a true insider can provide.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
