Personal Quote:

[about his first wife] She was a terrible snob. This girl had inherited seven houses - which was as good a reason for getting rid of her as any. See more »


He had three daughters with his wife, Nancy. See more »


His plot trademarks involve: manipulations that eventually go awry, outrageous and vulgar scenarios arising (often of a sexual or foul-mouthed nature), and a satirical comment from one/some of his characters on the follies and foibles of their world. See more »
