"There was a business, he thought heavily. Year in and year out, in good times or bad, they could always sell love on Lower Street, and make a profit on it."

This rollicking novel based on events and people of Grand Junction in the 1920s and 1930s, was met with great controversy when it was released. The author, mostly known as a prolific Hollywood screenwriter, went on to lead a very controversial and interesting life that began on the Western Slope.
I read this book because I live in a Grand Junction, the hometown of the author, Dalton Trumbo. The setting is here in the 1920s and early 1930s. The style is very melodramatic, but the story us engaging. It tells about the rise and fall of a local businessman, ending withe terrible early years of the Great Depression. I enjoyed seeing this early work of Trumbo, and learning a little more about local history. Not recommended unless you have anInterest in either Trumbo or western Colorado.
