Schutt's sixth book is similar to those that have come before - small, tightly wound sentences populating stories that feel like they may explode at any moment and forever alter your perception of how we should tell stories. But in Pure Hollywood, the writing is elevated from mere brilliance to the stuff of legend.

Loaded with fearsome imagery and poetic turns of phrase, Schutt's work is literary binary traction, the grotesque and the beautiful feeding off one another in a way that is beyond thrilling.
