This is the book that turned me into an obsessed fan of Orson Welles. It gives a great chronological view of the life of Welles concentrating mostly on his professional projects rather than his personal life. I especially enjoyed the chapters covering his early life and his early career during the radio years of entertainment. I'm not sure there's a better biography available on Welles.
Review: Citizen WellesUser Review - Goodreads
Started reading this but couldn't get more than twenty pages into it. Too full of "child prodigy" bull, slick biographical prose and outlandish, obviously untrue anecdotes. I'll come back and skim it, but it seems thin on facts.
