About the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) is the creator of Tarzan, one of the most popular fictional characters of all time, and John Carter, hero of the Barsoom science fiction series. Burroughs was a prolific author, writing almost 70 books before his death in 1950, and was one of the first authors to popularize a character across multiple media, as he did with Tarzan s appearance in comic strips, movies, and merchandise. Residing in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, Burroughs was drawn into the Second World War and became one of the oldest war correspondents at the time. Edgar Rice Burroughs s popularity continues to be memorialized through the community of Tarzana, California, which is named after the ranch he owned in the area, and through the Burrough crater on Mars, which was named in his honour.

By Harold Billings on June 11, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Burroughs wrote several contemporary-based short novels that are more entertaining than a regular Burroughs reader would expect. This is probably the weakest of that bunch, but still handles the story well -- the regeneration of young women dragged into a clearly prostitutional and dope background. THE GIRL FROM HOLLYWOOD is the best, a strong story, interesting characters, a family and geography based most probably on Burroughs own circumstances and family after establishing the Tarzana ranch. THE OAKDALE AFFAIR follows in interest, and is better than this book, but both are worth reading. THE MUCKER is somewhat related, but much more of an adventure novel (in two parts), and not really as good a novel as the HOLLYWOOD book. Surprisingly, one of my favorites among every one that I have read, which is every one them!

Format: Hardcover
Farris's is a house of ill-repute, and when a police officer set on throwing Farris in jail sees a woman escaping out of the back of the building in silky and scanty dress, he corners her and blackmails her into testifying against Farris. At the trial, she contends that Farris held her there against her will and stole her clothes to keep her prisoner. Her beauty and appearance of innocence endears her to the jury, and after the court proceedings, one man approaches her and offers to help her get back on her feet. Stunned by his pure intentions but too prideful to accept, she is inspired to try to live a good life.

She gets a job and although she can barely afford to care for herself, she stays on the straight and narrow, but her past is bound to catch up to her.

The Girl From Farris's reads easily the way Burroughs' other works typically do. It is short, entertaining, and satisfying with a cute little twist ending.

This book was not the adventure story one is normally ready for in a Burroughs novel. It followed along the same lines as the "Mucker". I did enjoy it for it's story, of course being a Burroughs book, I knew how it would end.

Not as well known as other works by this author, this an interesting urban, drama set in the early 20th century. Good read.
