There’s some explosive stuff in the book about Woody Allen. Hemingway also shares an even more blatant in-kind memory involving her Star 80 director:
They [Hemingway, Bob Fosse] were drinking one night at the Beverly Hills Hotel and Fosse wanted to go upstairs: The elevator let us off at my floor. I let us into my room. And then, for the next 15 minutes, I ran rings around the couch while Fosse chased me for purposes of sex. ‘I have a boyfriend,’ I said.
That didn’t dissuade him one bit… ‘Well, I’m not interested,’ I said.
This stopped him for a moment. He steadied himself on the couch and looked at me. ‘I have never not [blanked] my leading lady,’ he said.
Hemingway’s retort: ‘Meet the first.’
The book, with a title that is cleverly evocative of The Sun Also Rises, comes out April 7. Along with a companion tome aimed at younger female readers, Invisible Girl. Read the rest of Kurtz’s piece here.
