Eric Lax’s new book of interviews with Woody Allen, along with recent .

Eric Lax’s new book of interviews with Woody Allen, along with recent collections of Allen’s fiction and prose, helps burnish the director’s legacy. Allen is a big Orson Welles fan - he tells Lax he considers Citizen Kane the greatest American film ever made - and Conversations With Woody Allen is essentially the Woodman’s chance to do his version of This Is Orson Welles, a magnificent book (published in 1992) that collected years of talk between the orotund Kane auteur and his interlocutor-protégé, Peter Bogdanovich.

And what Lax has produced is a marvel of intimacy and insight: a book that traces Allen's career from his precocious start as a gag writer to his apotheosis as a genuine auteur; a book that takes readers behind the scenes of films such as Annie Hall.

When I first picked up this book, I knew very little. When I put it down, I had become a lifelong "Woodyphile". It is a great introduction to Allen's life and work. By having exclusive access to Allen, Eric Lax presents a side of Allen that the average person could never know. A must read for anyone, whether they be a friend or foe of Woody Allen
