In these four semi-autobiographical stories Fitzgerald highlights some of the absurdities of Hollywood. They feature Pat Hobby, a down-on-his-luck scriptwriter. In the course of his adventures neither the stars, producers nor, least of all, the writers are spared from Fitzgerald's demolishing wit. These superb examples of short fiction succeed in mocking both success and failure as they deliver their sting with deadly humour.
These stories are read for you by Richard Mitchley who has worked in theatres throughout Britain as well as the BBC and ITV and his own Mayfly Theatre company.
