It's not even clear if Welles wrote this, but I have to say this book is very much like his film career- flashes of brilliance mixed in with some self-indulgent tedium. But, above all, its a shame his demons prevented him from writing or directing more because the brilliance is there. Really astute, noir writing that Chandler would have envied and a Felliniesque cast of characters. Any Welles fan will gobble it up like caviar!
