Some writers are pure poets. Some are master wordsmiths. And some are Joe Eszterhas, the larger-than-life screenwriter of such Hollywood masterpieces as "Showgirls," "Basic Instinct," "Flashdance" and "Sliver."
He has written a memoir, called Hollywood Animal. There is a really funny and scathing criticism of the book in this week's New Yorker. Read it for a chuckle. I laughed so hard I snorted.
