Nathanael West was a gifted, high-strung novelist and screenwriter who became one of the voices of his generation. He is famous for two masterpieces:The Day of the Locust and Miss Lonelyhearts. Martos is a figurative painter who has exhibited in galleries in San Juan and New York. He lives in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

In this new visual interpretation of Nathanael West’s classic tale, renowned as one of the most penetrating novels ever written about Hollywood, sinister black-and-white illustrations bring the text to life. The Day of the Locust is a dark comedic fable of morality and desperation, set in the center of the American film industry during the Great Depression. Regarded as a cult classic, this novel reveals West’s gift for striking insight and his darkly humorous prose. The stark, startling depictions of the milieu and the characters give new life to this story, which gets to the heart of a society of alienated individuals who have come to Hollywood in the hopes of fulfilling their dreams.
