The book "My Lunches with Orson: Conversations between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles," which Wellesnet reported on back in October, will also be released as an unabridged audio book on July 9.
Presumably the audio book will utilize the recordings made by Jaglom during Welles' final years. While the hardcover book will carry a $27 list price, Macmillan/ Metropolitan Books has listed the audio book at $39.99. It will be issued on compact disc. A running time has not been announced.
Peter Biskind (”Easy Riders, Raging Bulls”) is editing the book using transcripts of conversations taped by Jaglom.
Jaglom has stated he recorded their frequent lunchtime chats at Ma Maison with Welles’ knowledge. However, some Welles associates have maintained he was unaware he was being taped until shortly before his death. (more...)
