In general it is imprudent to write critically about the work of people whom you know well, and Joan Mellen and I have been friends for something like 20 years. I would leave her 13th book to others to judge here, except that the subject fascinates me and - more - there is something happening in and around it that is irresistible.The work is "Hellman and Hammett, The Legendary Passion of Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett" (HarperCollins. 572 pages. $32).Hellman, of course, was a playwright ("The Little Foxes," "Watch on the Rhine")

Surely the board would want to consider what the group had learned about the woman who, most agreed, had performed so well in her interview, the board member thought.
