    He spent his earliest years in post WWII refugee camps. He came to America and grew up in Cleveland, stealing cars, rolling drunks, battling priests, nearly going to jail. He became the screenwriter of the worldwide hits Basic Instinct, Jagged Edge, and Flashdance. He also wrote the legendary disasters Showgirls and Jade. The rebellion never ended, even as he became the most famous, or infamous, screenwriter in Hollywood.

    Overall

    Joe Eszterhas memoir is a strong, engaging romp through Hollywood of the 80s and 90s. "Romp" may be the wrong word, "stomp" might be better. But it's a lot of fun and very revealing. Great stories of an audacious character, who has a fascinating life history as well. The reading by actor Eric Bogosian is wonderful. My only regret is that I had to listen to the abridged version. I had waited to order the unabridged version, and for some reason it does not seem to be offered at this time?!? This abridgement is thoroughly enjoyable, but I think it's only about a quarter of the length of the unabridged book. I'm sure I'm missing a lot.
