Some Faces in the Crowd: Short Stories (Paperback)
One of the most accomplished novelists and screenwriters of our time (What Makes Sammy Run?, On the Waterfront), Budd Schulberg is a master of the art of the short story, as he proved in his early collection Some Faces in the Crowd. The crowd is the American landscape: indelible characters drawn coast-to-coast from the teeming streets of New York to tables at Hollywood's legendary nightclub, Ciro's. In these sparkling stories, Schulberg brings us vivid, restless people haunted by abrupt failure in the wake of rapid success.
Budd Schulberg has also written The Harder They Fall, Moving Pictures, On the Waterfront (play and screenplay), Ringside, and Sparring with Hemingway, all published by Ivan R. Dee. He lives in Westhampton Beach, New York.
