    Written by underground avant-garde filmmaker Anger, Hollywood Babylon rocked the film world to its core. The slim and badly-written counter-store paperback, first released in France in 1959, divulged secrets from behind the silver screen with its gruesome and gory details of silent and speaking film stars: their suicides, sex scandals, and prescription pill and booze problems.The classic Hollywood expose. Hollywood Babylon has become the definite tabloid style dissection of Tinseltown. Anger breathlessly relays snippets of salacious gossip, innuendo, conspiracy and fact. It's one of those books that makes you feel like taking a hot shower after reading.Anger was an Hollywood kid and it shows. He immersed himself in the culture as an outsider and his fascination and revulsion are worn on his sleeve. At times it feels like you are reading James Ellroy, only these crimes actually took place. Anger's style is pure tabloid and those expecting any of his mystical discourse will be let down.It's badly written and poorly edited but nonetheless riveting and essential reading for anyone who ever felt that something just isn't right in La La Land.

    Kenneth Angers books are the leaders in their particular field.If anything he manages to surpass himself with lurid descriptions of the sordid details of stars misdemeanours.There are some really great pictureswhich i have not seen anywhere else.He seems to take a particular interest in suicide as the chapter devoted to this is over 70 pages long.Maybe a trifle too long.He does utilise some material from his original book which i think is cheating.However if you are interested in the seamier side of the stars life then you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
