Christopher BuckleyEszterhas writes with his fists. You practically duck as you turn the page…[his] mad account at times makes you want to hurl the book out the window, and yet you don't. You keep going, thinking, where—on earth—is this headed? The man is more than one bubble off plumb, and yet you can't help liking him. "We are fools for Christ's sake," writes Paul in I Corinthians 4:10. (A line oddly not adduced by Eszterhas.) Joe Eszterhas is God's fool, all lit up in neon, and it's quite the show. You will be appalled, you will be revolted, you will almost certainly go, Oy gevalt, but you won't be bored. And you may even be moved.
