Miss Lonelyhearts & The Day of the Locust by Nathanael West
"Largely unknown during his brief lifetime, Nathanael West is now regarded as one of the finest authors of the 1930s--a writer whose slashing satires of American decay are so dead-on accurate that they are often painful to read. This is particularly true of his two best works, Miss Lonelyhearts and The Day of the Locust. Both novels are short and intense, and both present horrific visions of American society choking to death on its own mass-media fantasies."
Next Up: A Time to Be Born by Dawn Powell. This is a great post about Powell's writing and life.
...I'm currently trying to satisfy my dream of actually living in New York by reading about New York in the old days.
Collector is my favorite track.
I love all of the French New Wave references/samplings in this film. The soundtrack is fantastic too! This is actually my favorite jam from the film, although they didn't put it on the soundtrack.
