The Hollywood that greeted Cendrars in 1936 was in its heydey. Cendrars was often snubbed by studio guards and the stars and industry movers and shakers with whom he was trying to hobnob. His response was to invent a wildly funny Hollywood of his own, embellishing his adventures and mixing them with black humor, star anecdotes, and wry social commentary.
