FORMER CBS SCREENWRITER DONATES E-BOOK ROYALTIES TO CHARITY
I finished Scott Turow’s, Innocent, and loved it. Coincidentally, tonight I was at a book event in downtown L.A. where he was in conversation with Dustin Hoffman, who bought the film rights to Scott’s “Personal Injuries.” No one writes courtroom scenes any better…or ever has. I’m reading galleys of a stunning first novel, Saving Max, by Antoinette van Heugten. A high-powered female lawyer puts her autistic and depressed son in a mental hospital that makes ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ look like Club Med. It’s one of those parent’s worst nightmare stories, and it’s terrific. It will be out in September.
