Artie reported that his latest assistant quit, but wouldn’t give a specific reason: “She had just gone through a personal thing and it was a lot of work for her. I was very nice, believe me – she would yell at me!” Artie explained that she was really affected by his “heroin crash”: “She was really sad about that.” Artie laughed that she finally burned out during the rush to finish his book, adding that his agent was irate: “He yelled, ‘How am I supposed to get shit to you now?'”
