From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Carpetbaggers comes a novel of passion, intrigue, power, and money. With 11 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, The Dream Merchants provides a fascinating look at the early days of the world’s most glamorous industry—Hollywood. It was the latest “gold rush”—when ambitious, if unscrupulous, men and women flooded California to turn cinematic dreams into reality, regardless of the moral cost.
Johnny Edge, a former carnival barker, schemes and plots his way to the top while Peter Kessler turns his back on a staid life of small-town stability to stake his fortune on the movie business. Beautiful starlet Dulcie Warren is willing to use her sexuality and to play dirty to get to the top, if that’s what it takes. When the lives of these three ambitious, determined characters collide, they have the potential to build a dream—or shatter one.
“He is still recognizable as the playboy-novelist who—spurning nice reviews and a different kind of reputation—happily wrote about money for money, and about sex for sex.” —The New Yorker
