    Young Orson Epub æ Kindle Edition young free, orson kindle, Young Orson PDFThis was a glorious journey through the first twenty five years of Orson Welles' life though I was surprised and delighted to discover that the last chapter was an account of his last day About a third of a way into the book I found myself lamenting my lack of drive and ambition and becoming bitter about the wasted hours I spend fast asleep Whatever about Welles being a genius or a child prodigy I was absolutely gobsmacked at his capacity for work I'm finding it hard to recall a single example from his teens or early twenties but he was

    Young Orson Epub æ Kindle Edition young free, orson kindle, Young Orson PDFA splendid book on Orson WellesIt starts a little slowly with a lot of material about his parents but what makes this book valuable is that it looks at Welles' early career with a sympathetic eye Unlike Simon Callow's The Road to Xanadu We get to marvel at the inventiveness and energy of Welles and in another nice touch McGilligan takes Welles' seriously as a writerThe book takes us up to the first day of shooting on Citizen Kane and then leaps to the last day of Welles' life In a way this is the kind of biography Welles would have liked fun focused on the accomplishments and not scolding or looking for the hidden flaw that would spoil everything I learned some things about Welles I never knew and I found this book most enjoyable

    Young Orson Epub æ Kindle Edition young free, orson kindle, Young Orson PDFOrson Welles all his appetites were outsized food alcohol female companionship work play disputes loyalty Larger than life indeed Pat McGilligan pays homage to Welles with a fittingly massive biography The subtitle if somewhat ponderous accurately describes the subject matter The Years of Luck and Genius on the Path to Citizen Kane A poignant coda covers Welles' last day on earth but otherwise all roads indeed lead to Citizen Kane There may be an assumption that Kane was the apotheosis of Welles' career; that's or less conventional wisdom not necessarily Pat's view at least as expressed here It's fair to say I think that Kane is a work of unuestioned genius So then taking Welles' career to Kane and no farther sharpens the uestion of how much of Welles' trajectory to that point can be apportioned to genius and how much to luck Wisely Pat leaves that conclusion to the reader Welles was preternaturally mature at least in the sense that at an early age he could comf

    Young Orson Epub æ Kindle Edition young free, orson kindle, Young Orson PDFIt's hard not to be interested in the young Orson especially for one who enjoyed the uneual appearances of the old Orson The book does a good job of describing his progress although his character remains partially hidden in the shadows I guess Orson would have enjoyed that but the reader may wish for depth
