The Seductive Strikers
It’s Wordsmith Day, a holiday to celebrate the weavers of words, and Hack felt that was the perfect time to lend his support to the Writers Guild of America strike.
Hack joined the WGA in 1957 when he was hired to write additional dialogue for the cult classic “Teen Jailbait in Women’s Prison.” He was kicked out five years later for trying to form an ultra left-wing splinter union because he didn’t think the WGA’s tactics were violent enough. But he’s always been a supporter of collective bargaining and he knows that the provisions the union is asking for are fair and reasonable. Right will prevail.
Don’t look for Hack on any picket lines because he’s always far too hungover to get out of bed before 3:00 in the afternoon. But this novel is his means of saying that he’s behind the WGA all the way.
