Nathanael West was one of America's most original writers. His novels, especially The Day of the Locust and Miss Lonelyhearts, continue to be widely read and stand as a particularly American image of tragedy drawn from popular and democratic culture.
The story of his life is as poignant and terrifying as anything in his novels. Jay Martin has written a biography that has bee praised as the last word on a mythic life. Martin successfully traces that certain inspiration, hard-going development, and inevitable demise of West's vision.
