Hi. the extract "stacked the Garden of Allah with scriveners brought west to spitball box-office reveries" is from the short story "this nib for hire" from Woody Allen's "mere anarchy". I have difficulty understanding the Garden of Allah, and to spitball box-office reveries. Here's more context:

It is said Dostoyevsky wrote for money to sponsor his lust for the roulette tables of St Petersburg. Faulkner and Fitzgerald too leased their gifts to ex-schmatte moguls who stacked the Garden of Allah with scriveners brought west to spitball box-office reveries.

Thank you in advance.
