Brilliantly titled "Heaven And Mel," Eszterhas says of the book, “On a human level it’s a great story, and it can’t be told in a nine-page letter. Much of it is amusing, some of it is very serious and has to do with anti-Semitism and questions of values. But mostly it’s just very human. I view it as a terrific tale.” That's one way to look at it. Another way to look at it is as an excuse to publish emails from Mel Gibson, which apparently this will include, featuring such out of context quotes as: “JUST GOT BOUNCED OFF HANGOVER. NO ONE WILL TELL ME WHY. THIS TOWN SUCKS!” Truly riveting.
At least this won't cost you too much, with Kindle Single selling for a mere $2.99. In case you care, Amazon will release this on June 6th and we suppose it will be good, trashy, exploitative, unnecessary summer reading for the beach. No word yet if Mel's lawyers are at the ready, but we presume this isn't the last we'll hear on this story.
