WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? is a stunning and disturbing book, chronicling the life of a heel, a hustler, a dishonest manipulative sharpie in Hollywood circa the 1930s/1940s. First published in 1941, the book drew immediate praise and howls of protest at its no-holds-barred depiction of Hollywood culture. Reader Scott Brick has a flat American accent, which is expressive in his characterizations--at turns sarcastic, contemptuous, angry, desperate, wheedling, and compelling in the pace he sets for the overall narrative. He whines and cajoles and wallows in agony. Fascinating. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
