The Deer Park, Paperback / softback Book

The Deer Park Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Desert D'Or is the fashionable Californian resort where Hollywood's elite converge when they need a break.

It is an incestuous hothouse of a town - a haven for manipulators, film stars, lovers, pimps, producers, whores, gamblers, scriptwriters and cheats.

Into this nightmare world of depravity arrives Sergius O'Shaughnessy, recently discharged from the Air Force, traumatised by his ar experiences and trying to write the Great American Novel.

But O'Shaughnessy's burning ambition begins to lose its edge; lured by greed and rules by weakness, he soon becomes disturbingly familiar with the dnagerous life of slick compromises and sexual follies... The Deer Park is a powerful and vigorous satire on Hollywood's excesses and corruption.

Combining a savage imagination with a heightened documentary realism, Mailer paints an uncompromising and terrifying portriat of a decadent society lost in moral confusion and despair.
