Joe Eszterhas and Mel Gibson had an international war of words in April of this 12 months over their motion picture "The Maccabees". "Heaven and Mel" is Eszterhas's explosive, unabridged, no-holds-barred account. it's a Hollywood tale yet it is not. it's the tale of affection and hatred, of anti-Semitism and fathers and sons, and of a film star's tragic sexual obsession. it's the tale of God and the satan, devastating yet frequently hilarious. it truly is Joe Eszterhas at his most sensible: two-fisted, movingly delicate, consistently outrageous.
