The mention of the holy name of filmaker and honorary subgenius Orson Welles gives me an opening to mention how much I enjoyed My Lunches With Orson, transcribed by Henry Jaglom and edited by Peter Biskind. Orson's brilliant, funny, racist, gossipy, backbiting table talk with film director Jaglom over many lunchtime conversations at Ma Maison in Hollywood during the early 1980's. An unmissable delight for Wellesians and other demented movie buffs.
