He was not equally partial to all these outlets. Goldman would have liked to have been a "great novelist", but seemed to intuit early on that it was not for him. He told me long ago in London, during a West End season that was an embarrassment of riches, that he steered clear of theatre because he strongly disliked theatre people - which is one reason his Broadway book is a better read than his Hollywood book. In return, theatre ...
