      About The Book

      Ben Hecht was brilliant, coruscating, gallant, and outrageous and never dull. His works uniquely reflect the man, and this is the landmark work of the journalist and co-author of plays, The Front Page and Twentieth Century.

      As Sidney Zion observes in his introduction: “To write a great autobiography, you have to live it. And while most writers are lucky to life half a life and are seldom comfortable doing it, Ben Hecht lived a dozen worlds, enjoying them as if he were a citizen of each. Acrobat, magician, poet, newspaperman, author, screenwriter, propagandist — -Hecht was all of these and then some. He lived with passion and wit This book is loaded with marvelous tales of Chicago, New York and Hollywood, of H.L. Mencken, Charles MacArthur, John Barrymore, Harpo Marx, Sherwood Anderson, Fanny Brice, Dorothy Parker…”
