The land along Pacific Palisades is apt to slip away without warning, hence the road-side signs - SLIDE AREA. Narrated by a script-writer, Lambert's widely-acclaimed 1959 Hollywood classic of lonely souls marooned on a glittering wasteland is a perceptive and sensitive study of human emotion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Most of all there is enormous skill: the author has the playwright's flair for taut, meaningful dialogue; the novelist's feeling for mood, the short-story writer's love of plot; and the good movie writer's capacity for deft characterization that is visual as well as psychological * New York Times *
These are the most truthful stories about the film world and its suburbia I have ever read * Christopher Isherwood *
A brilliant piece of work, terse, compassionate, and beautifully made. It earns a place on anyone's shelves along with Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon and Nathanael West's The Day of the Locust * Times Literary Supplement *
