The Ghost Script
Jules Feiffer (Liveright)
Bursting with Feiffer’s frenetic character drawings, this McCarthy-era noir romp set in L.A. takes readers alongside gumshoe Archie Goldman as he tries to track down the Ghost Script. That legendary screenplay supposedly uncovers a conspiracy behind the Hollywood blacklist, but no one can quite separate the truth from fiction in this wild tale. From a cartooning master, this is the culmination of his trilogy beginning with Kill My Mother and Cousin Joseph—take them all on vacation for a lively binge.
