My Lunches with Orson: Conversations between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles - Peter Biskind, Henry Jaglom, Orson Welles Wildly entertaining, eye-opening, shocking and bittersweet. Orson Welles didn't hold back in his opinions in these conversations with fellow director Henry Jaglom. Welles often times showed his paranoia and seemed to perform for an audience but we do get a very candid and open Welles. This is a great book and a refreshing read after having consumed so many all-encompassing biographies. Sometimes it is good to look at the small details in order to get a better sense of the bigger picture. Read my full review here: http://www.outofthepastblog.com/2013/07/my-lunches-with-orson.html
