My Lunches with Orson: Conversations between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles - Peter Biskind

Decades before the freedom of the long-form internet podcast, we had Henry Jaglom recording his daily meals at Ma Maison with Orson Welles. Recorded over several years late in Welles’ life, the two discuss everything from gripes with and gossip about Hollywood, politics, art, the correct temperature for chicken salad, Welles’ latest project and, of course, Welles himself. Sifting fact from fiction when it comes to Welles is a fool’s errand, but why would you ever want to? Someone once said “Give a man a mask and he’ll show you his true self” and no one played the part of Orson Welles better than he. Part charming hagiography, part politically-incorrect diatribe and part crash course in the fine art of human conversation, My Lunches with Orson is more than a great book, its great company!
