West, Nathanael. 'The Complete Works of Nathanael West', published in 1968 by Secker & Warbury in hardback, with dustjacket, 421pp, no ISBN

Category: Novels

Includes the works 'The Dream Life of Balso Snell', 'Miss Lonelyhearts', 'A Cool Million' and 'The Day of the Locust'.

The Dream Life of Balso Snell is a fantasy about some rather scatalogical adventures of the hero in the innards of the Trojan Horse. Miss Lonelyhearts is considered to be West's masterpiece; A Cool Million is a satiric success story in mock-Horatio Alger style celebrating America's economic depression; and The Day of the Locust is considered to be the best novel ever written about Hollywood and is a savage indictment of an era and a way of life
