What Makes Sammy Run?
by Budd Schulberg




Overview -
The classic book that shaped two generations' view of the movie business and introduced the archetypal Hollywood player Sammy Glick. He's got a machete mouth and a genius for double-cross. As Budd Shulberg--author of the screenplay On the Waterfront--follows Sammy's relentless upward progress, he creates a virtuoso study in character that manages to be hilariously appalling yet deeply compassionate.

"Sammy Glick remains at the top of the Hollywood sleaze heap, a hustler nonpareil.... What Makes Sammy Run? Is still the quintessential novel about "the all-American heel.'" - Moredcai Richler, GQ
