Edited transcripts of conversations between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles, who met for lunch on a weekly basis until the actor-director's death in 1985. Jaglom recorded the conversations between 1983 and 1985, and these have been transcribed and edited by Peter Biskind, who has nonetheless done nothing to conceal the tone and content of Welles' words - gossipy, opinionated, prejudiced and cynical, as much as it is witty and entertaining. The friends' conversations range over all manner of subjects, from Welles' career to Hollywood gossip, the arts, politics and world affairs.
