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.
