Los Angeles, California (Location Key)

Code: 
1279
Description: 

In Requiem for a Nun the "ghettoes" of Los Angeles are one of the places (along with those of "New York and Detroit and Chicago") to which the Negro tenant farmers and "furnish-hands" who worked in Yoknapatawpha's fields have moved by the 1930s (193). Nearby "Hollywood," where Faulkner often worked as a screenwriter during the 1930s and 40s but where he never felt at home, appears in the novel as an adjective in the unseemly phrase "trick Hollywood bathroom" (123).
