Description

ORSON WELLES by Barbara Leaming (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“A biography that splendidly evokes a good deal of the man, his work, and his time.…Here is a man of appetites, of supreme self-confidence, and deep insecurities. But above all here is the man.” (New York Times Book Review)

Genius, artist, monstre sacré, Orson Welles had one of the most brilliant and tempestuous careers in show business. From his auspicious directing debut with the legendary Citizen Kane in his twenties, to his stormy marriage to Rita Hayworth, his is a truly dramatic story with an all-star cast.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Grace Conlin. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“[The] next best thing to a Welles autobiography….An entertaining read that unfolds like a good novel.” (Amazon.com Review)

Genius, artist, monstre sacré, Orson Welles had one of the most brilliant and tempestuous careers in show business. With remarkable detail and intimacy, Barbara Leaming reveals the private Welles: from child prodigy and young lion in Dublin and New York, to the succès de scandale of his The War of the Worlds broadcast; from his auspicious directing debut with the legendary Citizen Kane in his twenties, to the sabotage of his further directing career by the Hollywood studios; from his affairs, carousing, and stormy marriage to Rita Hayworth, to his associations with Franklin D. Roosevelt and aspirations to the presidency.
