KIRKUS REVIEW

Originally scheduled for February 1989 publication, MacAdams' biography of reporter/playwright/novelist/screenwriter Hecht has been delayed for publication for more than a year because of legal problems over some previously quoted, now paraphrased, letters. In our review (12/1/88), we found the book to be ""smartly paced, well-written,"" and noted that ""MacAdams has a great time penning Hecht's fantastic pranks. . .A grabber.
