Summary Stories of twentieth-century American literary giants, by the man who was their friend, peer, and confidant When he was introduced to F. Scott Fitzgerald as a potential partner on a screenplay, novelist and scriptwriter Budd Schulberg was surprised the author was still alive. In Schulberg's view, the pressures of success and the public's merciless judgment had destroyed Fitzgerald's talent early in his career'a situation that is arguably typical for many of America's great literary geniuses. In Writers in America, Schulberg shares memories and insights from his relationships with authors such as Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck, Nathaneal West, and Sinclair Lewis, as well as brilliant writers who never attained the success and recognition they deserved, such as Thomas Heggen. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
