Budd Schulberg wrote another very good novel called THE DISENCHANTED (1950).
  It's not really a noir story, though it does cover some noir-ish issues. It's a fictionalised version of Schulberg's experience of working on a screenplay with F. Scott Fitzgerald in the 1930s. I also found the book to be a good companion piece to Fitzgerald's Hollywood fiction from the 1930s, his unfinished novel THE LAST TYCOON (a great book; if you like THE GREAT GATSBY and haven't read it, I recommend it), and the ironic Pat Hobby short stories.
