RARA-AVIS: New Woody Haut book

I saw mention that Serpent's Tail is publishing a new book by Woody Haut: HEARTBREAK AND VINE: THE FATE OF HARDBOILED WRITERS IN HOLLYWOOD. It's out now in the UK, and will hit North America early next year.

A reviewer on the BBC's web site says, "Woody Haut's book focuses on the experiences, good and bad, of hardboiled fiction writers in Hollywood, from Hammett and Chandler to Elmore Leonard and James Ellroy. He discusses both their attempts to write scripts and the attempts of Hollywood to film their books. Very readable."

Sounds interesting.
