Publisher's Summary

In Writers in America, scriptwriter and novelist Budd Schulberg shares memories and insights from his relationships with authors such as F. Scott 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.

Here are stories of 20th-century American literary giants, by a man who was their friend, peer, and confidant. For example, when the author was introduced to F. Scott Fitzgerald as a potential partner on a screenplay, Schulberg was surprised that 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.
