Summary
In this thinly-disguised pseudonymous satire, Madge Lawrence is a "good girl" trying to make it as a screenwriter in Hollywood. As secretary to a big-time producer, Madge learns the movie business from the inside. The story unfolds in a series of documents--memos, telegrams, newspaper items, and letters from Madge to a former colleague in New York
