The Pleasure Dial by Jeremy Edwards  The year is 1934, and amiable New York gag writer Artie Plask has taken the West Coast plunge. His first day on staff with a top radio show introduces him to the irresistible Mariel Fenton, a wit among wits who immediately takes an interest in all aspects of Artie's life-especially his private life. As Artie finds his feet in a world of blustering comedians, pan-sexual sex goddesses, timid screen legends, exhibitionistic scriptwriters, and self-infatuated geniuses, Mariel leads him on a zany journey up and down the pleasure dial-a giddy romp through Hollywood that's chock-full of airwaves showdowns, writing-room counter-plots, devious impersonations, naked meetings, and a sensuality-drenched assortment of erotic escapades.

This story takes place in 1934 and a gag writer from New York Artie Plask, is offered a writing job in Hollywood with the top radio show. Once he arrives he finds himself in a home with other writers not in a building and a beautiful women swimming naked in the pool. Finding it difficult to concentrate. He also meets the top writer who also turns out to be a very attractive lady that he feels an attraction for. After a few meetings they begin a series of erotic escapades from their apartment to a train going to Santa Barbara and places in between. Somehow they do find time to write. After some time the show gets cancelled and Artie gets a new job back in New York he asks Mariel to come to New York with him and the writer not making you feel the she is really in love with Artie by her not saying anything to him at the last minute is rushing to the train station to catch Artie. The author does give you as the reader the feel of the 1930 with the radio show and trains stations. I got this book from net galley.
