THE HATED GUEST
by Charlie Finch
I have known writer Anthony Haden-Guest for 25 long years. He is a lot of fun in a rancid way and probably the most selfish journalist I have ever known. Why? Because not a month has passed in those 25 years when he hasn't called me up to ask a favor. "Charlie, do you have so-and-so's number?" "Charlie, remember that friend of yours who wrote such-and-such, could you call her for me? I would like to take her out."
