They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?

Publisher: McClelland & Stewart
A classic hard-boiled novel, trading back alleys and detectives offices for a dance marathon.
Robert is an aspiring director which, in Depression-era Hollywood, means that he’s an out-of-work extra. This might explain why he lets Gloria, similarly unemployed and similarly hunting for a break, talk him into being her partner in a marathon dance competition, despite having only just met her. But hey, there’s free food and a place to sleep (for 10 minutes every hour), so that can’t be terrible, right? But as the days and weeks wear on, Gloria’s gloominess and talk of dying become more and more frequent, leaving Robert to wonder what he’s gotten himself into.
