Vidal's Hollywood Novel: A Disappointment
Gore Vidal should restrict himself to historical novels set in the distant past. 'Hollywood' falls flat, for it lacks the insider's sensitivity that so many other recent Hollywood novels possess. Take 'A Boy Scout in Hollywood' by Brian J. Hayes for example. Though a novel, Hayes's work reflects the pain and suffering young men and women undergo as they attempt to enter the cruel, bitter world of Hollywood filmmaking. Vidal's 'Hollywood' contains no such pathos. Leave Vidal by the wayside and read Hayes instead.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
