I cannot believe he wrote "The Big Laugh.'"
It is truly terrible and without any redeeming qualities that I could discern. For a reader new to O'Hara's work try "Appointment in Samarra,"
Butterfield 8, or "Sermons and Sodawater." His short stories are also splendid.
I haven't read "10 North Frederick."--yet. I am thrilled that Penguin has released a new edition. I also plan to revisit "Elizabeth Appleton"-the best novel I have ever read about the academic world.
I feel very certain these books will take away the nasty taste left by "The Big Laugh;" a sickeningly disappointing work if ever there was one.
Fran Lebowitz says that this is the greatest Hollywood novel ever written. Ms. Lebowitz needs to get out more and read some Gavin Lambert.
