“Don't break your own heart.”
Joe Eszterhas, The Devil's Guide to Hollywood: The Screenwriter as God!

“Where could you go in Harrisonville?-this smalltime place haunted by by homilies, platitudes, and booshwah.”
Joe Eszterhas, Charlie Simpson's Apocalypse

“They were liberating Harrisonville, showing the hypocrites and phonies and $$$-squirrelers and chokeragged Yesmen some puffed-up balls. They were widening the mental horizons of a town more narrow-minded than its streets; they were missionaries laboring amon their bloodkin: montheytheistic theocentric cousins and uncles who swore allegiance to Uncle Sam, Jim Crow, Oral Roberts, and Dale Carnegie; they were waging their impudent revolution against people they'd cowedly called "sir" all their teenage lives.”
Joe Eszterhas, Charlie Simpson's Apocalypse
