"There have long been rumors of a lost cache of tapes containing private conversations between Orson Welles and his friend the director Henry Jaglom, recorded over regular lunches in the years before Welles died. The tapes, gathering dust in a garage, did indeed exist, and this book reveals for the first time what they contain. Here is Welles as he has never been seen before: talking intimately, disclosing personal secrets, reflecting on the highs and lows of his astonishing career, the people he knew--FDR, Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, Laurence Olivier, David Selznick, Rita Hayworth, and more--and the many disappointments of his last years"--Dust jacket flap.

A funny book to read or as I did pick and leaf through it. What an intelligent man. And witty and funny. He has amazing insight into people's character , literature and of course movie making. And quite a gossip also. give it a try.

This book was a hoot! Welles admits that he lies some, so you never know what's true or not but he is a very witty person and tells a story in such an amusing fashion, I've seen Citizen Kane and can't say that it's the best movie ever made, but the ":boy wonder" is a great conversationalist to say the least.
