Nationality: American. In Unhealthful Air Baker updates F. Scott Fitzgerald's Pat Hobby stories, by way of Damon Runyon. The novel follows the adventures of a devious, cynical Hollywood scriptwriter and gambler, Corey Burdick, who becomes entangled with a horserace-fixing syndicate, an Ozark nymphet, and her brutal husband. The book deals wittily with movie-TV clichés and the way our lives imitate the "art" of the movies. At one point, Burdick wonders in exasperation, "Was there any act of man that hadn't already appeared on the motion picture screen?"

Down-and-out screenwriter Corey Burdick lands a job butchering F. Scott Fitzgerald stories for television, while trying to set up the perfect scam at the Santa Anita racetrack for his debtor bookie and develop a romance with sensuous starlet Bambi Dookes
