A Cool Million and the Dream Life of Balso Snell: Two Novels

by

Nathanael West was only thirty-seven when he died in 1940, but his depictions of the sometimes comic, sometimes horrifying aspects of the American scene rival those of William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor. A Cool Million , written in 1934, is a satiric Horatio Alger story set in the midst of the Depression. The Dream Life of Balso Snell (1931) was described by one critic as a fantasy about some rather scatological adventures of the hero in the innards of the Trojan horse.
