Ben Hecht is most famous for writing the screenplay for Gone With the Wind and Perfidy. He was a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner. However, in many ways Guide For the Bedeviled is has most important work. Nowhere else does his no-nonsense, in-your-face prose sparkle through as in this book. Writing in the midst of WWII, he wrote all the things that Goldhagen researched and wrote in Hitler's Willing Executioners many years after the war.
