The Dream Merchants
Victoria Mixon's review
Jan 07, 2011
Robbins was one of the best selling authors of my childhood, a name I heard often while I was growing up, so I thought it was time I read one of his novels and formed an opinion for myself. And all I really learned is that small-minded, sensationalist best sellers were certainly alive and well in the 1960s, when Robbins wrote his self-preening, sexist, gratuitously violent story of the evolution of the film industry. I read it in the context of the self-publishing industry just being born in our era, which was interesting, but at the end when Robbins piously deals out violent rape to a character because, gosh darn it, she's just a damn irritating floozy constantly getting in the protagonist's way. . .yeah, that was the last I'll be reading of THIS muckraker.
