An acutely etched portrayal of up-to-date disillusionment in .  .

Sad Movies is both hilarious and affirmative, two traits which one rarely comes across in good books about Los Angeles . Lindquist's sharp eye for detail defines not only his characters, but the entire atmosphere of 1980s Hollywood.

Sad Movies is both hilarious and affirmative, two traits which one rarely comes across in good books about Los Angeles - and which are both totally welcome here. A strange, swiftly paced story that is funny and curiously powerful.

Mark Lindquist (born 1949) is an American sculptor in wood, artist, author, and photographer. Lindquist is a major figure in the redirection and resurgence of woodturning in the United States beginning in the early 1970s. His communication of his ideas through teaching, writing, and exhibiting, has resulted in many of his pioneering aesthetics and techniques becoming common practice.

Cool song quotes from the Smiths and Replacements place the book between melancholy self-possession and sensitive longing, though I would not be surprised if the feel is at least somewhat dated by now (think of "Less Than Zero"). My copy was absconded by a trailer park wench who later confessed and told me it was the only book she ever read all the way through. She also said one of her kids shredded it and she tossed the carcass.

Good read.

I bought this because of the "Trailer Park Chicks Dig It" review below. It came out about seven years before Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity" and it's sharper, funnier, cooler, and, of course, American. It's very 1980s, I agree with the other reviewer, but it's also "timeless" I suppose in that it's a guy in his 20s coming of age and all that. The author has a new novel coming out, "Never Mind Nirvana," which people here in Seattle are talking about, but I don't know much about it yet except it's supposed to be great and Peter Buck of R.E.M. wrote a quote for it.

I read this when it first came out and loved it. Somewhere suring my many moves over the years I lost my copy, and have been looking for a new one ever since. Easily one of the best in the group from that era that included "Less Than Zero" and "Bright Lights, Big City."

I think this was a good first novel. The characters were believable and the story was easy to follow. I didn't feel much for the characters in the end. I think he did a much better job with "Nevermind Nirvana," but this was a good, quick read.
