Most of them are too soft and too phony. But one great, real Hollywood read is Nathanael West’s “The Day of the Locust.” There is also an amazing book by William Goldman called “Adventures in the Screen Trade,” which tells the inside pain that even a most successful screenwriter goes through.

And, if I might add my two cents, “Monster, Living Off the Big Screen” by John Gregory Dunne.
