Book description
Set in the shadow of Hollywood opulence – the gaudy wastes of Los Angeles – West of Sunset is a sharp and potent satire of movie-making America. However the excessive glitter is embedded in a deeper plot about a successful man's fall from grace.

Hugo Arlington, a celebrated young writer, had the power to destroy people. His widow, Alice, is not the only person to be haunted by his death and life, and gradually the truth about the dangerous games Hugo played comes to light, and the past comes catching up with the present.

West of Sunset is an amusing and rich depiction of a world that Bogarde himself came to know and loathe.

First published in 1984, this is Dirk Bogarde's fourth novel.

About the author:
Sir Dirk Bogarde (28 March 1921 – 8 May 1999) was an English actor and writer.

Initially a matinée idol in such films as Doctor in the House (1954) and other Rank Organisation pictures, Bogarde later acted in art-house films such as Death in Venice (1971). In a second career, Bogarde wrote seven best-selling volumes of memoirs, six novels and a volume of collected journalism, mainly from his articles in The Daily Telegraph.
