Ghostwriter Taking A Few Creative Liberties With Paul Reiser's Life

LOS ANGELES—Challenged with the task of filling in details about Paul Reiser's life since the actor–comedian's work on the series Mad About You, ghostwriter Patrick Zyglund resorted to outright fabrication Tuesday. "I think I can spike things up a bit with a couple dozen pages in which Paul insinuates that he's drying out in a private recovery spa in Baja California and has to turn down roles in Unforgiven and Short Cuts, then sex it up with an extramarital love interest, let's say with a British supermodel," Zyglund said. "That'll give me the chance to gloss over The Marrying Man." Reiser himself was not available for comment on the autobiography, tentatively titled Reiserhood and scheduled for a May 2007 release, since his agent has not yet informed him it is being written.
