Description

This exciting novel about Dashiell Hammett, author of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man, and Lillian Hellman, author of The Children's Hour, reintroduces their larger-than-life personalities and the vicissitudes of their affair that spanned three decades.

Toperoff reimagines the highs and lows of a fast-living, hard-drinking literary couple and their individual passions, projects, and literary creations. Hammett and Hellman's relationship evolves during major artistic and political epochs—Hollywood's heyday, the New York literary scene, the Spanish Civil War, McCarthyism, and both world wars—and each movement is captured with subjectivity and credible insight.

Populated with writers, drinkers, filmmakers, and revolutionaries, Lillian and Dash chronicles the unusual affair of two prominent and headstrong figures.

reviews
      • premium: False
      • source: George Vecsey, former sports columnist, New York Times
      • content: "Toperoff captures time and place and most importantly two vital people. It is not easy to write about writers, but with energy and wit and skill, Toperoff brings Hellman and Hammett's talent and pain directly into the present."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Sam Toperoff's speculative novel about the affair between writers Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett is thoroughly entertaining, perhaps more than the truth may have been. Hellman and Hammett were legendary figures whose relationship spanned decades and has been the subject of much conjecture. Translating what was, and what may have been, is not easy, yet the book, in all its juiciness, succeeds in doing so. The audio version is equally impressive, with narrators Mark Bramhall, Lorna Raver, and Bernadette Dunne complementing each other and enriching Toperoff's engaging dialogue. They succeed by bringing to life the words and personalities of two celebrities who were known almost as much for their personal lives as they were for their writing. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
