Considered classics of American literature, Nathaneal West’s Miss Lonelyhearts and The Day of the Locust reveal America at the height of the Great Depression, evoking the disillusionment and despair of that time. Miss Lonelyhearts explores the suffering a young advice columnist working for a New York City newspaper. Locked into a deep depression as the result of his work, Miss Lonelyhearts seeks comfort in drink, in religion, and in the meaningless affair that becomes his downfall. In The Day of the Locust, aspiring artist Tod Hackett falls in love with Faye Greener, a beautiful starlet with big dreams. Through his work as a costume designer and his burgeoning friendship with Faye, Tod is introduced to the world behind the movies, and the varied and unusual characters that populate the fringes of Hollywood.
