Michael Levine, 26, decided in 1976 to cash in on his 10-year-old hobby of collecting autographs by compiling a sort of almanac of the inaccessible. The result is How to Reach Anyone Who's Anyone (Price/Stern/Sloan, $4.95). The tome includes the mailing addresses of 3,200 notables from Paul McCartney to Nadia Comaneci, Idi Amin to David Rockefeller. Writing the book took less than a year and was easier than getting it published. "I have more rejection slips than hairs on my head," he says. And then there was the problem of keeping track of the subjects, whom Levine calls "the most transient, mobile people on earth." The top mail getter, according to Levine, is Bo Derek; she receives 50,000 pieces a week at 1888 Century Park E., Suite 1400, Los Angeles, CA. Levine grew up in New Jersey, son of a clothes-designer father and artist mother, attended Rutgers for three months, but dropped out to become a concert promoter. Levine and his wife, Darlene, moved in 1976 to L.A., where he began a local TV guide. His book, meanwhile, has sold 30,000 copies, and Levine plans a revised edition each year. "It's a constant updating process," he says. "Six months from now there'll be a new Bo Derek, and we'll want her in the book."
