This fall I got hold of You Play the Black and the Red Comes Up, by Richard Hallas. This book has been mentioned here a lot. I will simply join in the general praise and say that it didn't occur to me that this might be a parody until I read that somewhere.

************* Ah! Glad you got to read it. I loved the California satire. Hallas's novel is an early play on Hollywood.
 The mood sorta reminded my of Nathanael West's DAY OF THE LOCUST, another early Hollywood novel.
