Jay Parini reviewed Joe Woodward's ALIVE INSIDE THE WRECK: A BIOGRAPHY OF NATHANAEL WEST for Literary Review magazine's February issue. The article is titled "California Nightmares."
Parini says, "This is a remarkably good and succinct biography, well worth reading. It adds considerably to our understanding of West, taking on the fabled machinery of Hollywood itself, which often seems more of a troubled state of mind than an actual place or industry."
