[nice attractive copy, just the teensiest bit of shelfwear to book; jacket similarly nice, soft vertical crease and short corner crease in front flap, minor external handling wear]. (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED simply ("To ________") and SIGNED by the author on the title page. The "story" in the subtitle was quite deliberately chosen by the author, one of our finest writers on film, who has taken a novelistic approach to Welles's life and who has the writing chops to pull it off, producing a biography that "summons up the man and the artist and does justice to the genius and the fraud; the man of the world and the solitary; the spoiled kid and the sage; the infant prodigy; the chronic fabricator of this own legend; the boy who flirted with homosexuals; the ladies' man; the youth who took Broadway and radio by storm; the begetter of the incomparable CITIZEN KANE." Signed copies are uncommon. Signed by Author
