Description
"This exciting novel about Dashiell Hammett ( The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man ) and Lillian Hellman ( The Children's Hour ) reintroduces their larger-than-life personalities and the vicissitudes of their affair that spanned three decades. Toperoff reimagines the highs and lows of a fast-living, hard-drinking literary couple, and their individual passions, projects, and literary creations. Hammett and Hellman's elationship evolves during major artistic and political epochs. Hollywood heyday, the New York literary scene, the Spanish Civil War, McCarthyism, and both world wars and each movement is captured with subjectivity and credible insight. Populated with writers, drinkers, filmmakers, and revolutionaries, Lillian and Dash chronicles the unusual affair of two prominent and headstrong figures."
