Joe Eszterhas has written some of Hollywood’s biggest hits – Basic Instinct; Flashdance – and walked away with some of the largest writing cheques in the industry’s history.  In The Devil’s Guide to Hollywood he reveals everything he knows about the movies – the players, the personalities, the legends – and screenwriting itself, revealing all that has inspired, amused and enraged him in Hollywood since his career began.  Hilarious, colourful but also practical, this is required reading for anyone who’s ever thought of writing for the screen, and for anyone who wants the inside story on the organised insanity of the movie business.

Reviews

'Punchy, belligerant... hilarious' Guardian

'Accessible, perceptive, passionate and funny, delivered in the author's characteristic no-holds-barred, visceral, profanity-strewn prose... An indispensible addition to the liberty of anyone interested in screenwriting or Hollywood folklore' Sunday Times

'Addictive... shockingly indiscreet' Metro

'An amusing and scandal-packed guide to making yourself Hollywood's highest-paid screenwriter... As a peek through a broken window into the mind of one of history's most successful screenwriters, and a guide to getting ahead, it's in a class of its own' Empire
