Weird, my wife's reading What Makes Sammy Run as we speak, or as I type (literally). I read it this past summer. Budd Schulberg is the author's name, and I really liked the novel -- it's got an HB vibe, though there's no crime or mystery. The narrator has an 40s- newspaperman way of talking. It's a legendary "hollywood" novel, though strangely I don't think it's ever been turned into a movie (though I recall that someone famous has the rights ... information ... getting hazy).
