I received the book today (only four days from the UK - faster than some domestic mail here). Strangely, the book doesn't appear to have a credit for that cover photo we were curious about. Also curious is that the copyright page lists permission from Beatrice, although for what I am uncertain. I've only made it through the introduction, but it seems Callow's opinion has changed somewhat, as the reviews mention. He is hardly eulogizing Welles, though; he makes it a point to reference two groups of Welles "supporters" - the Wellesolators, fans who think he did no wrong, and the Orsonolators, the academics who produce strangled theoretical works about Welles and hold conferences to spout them. He makes Catherine Benamou his shining example of this latter club, reproducing a passage from one of her writings on Welles that is nigh on gibberish, due to its being so coated in academic obfuscation. His emphasis on the political aspects of this period of Welles' life seems right on to me. It's a shorter book than I expected, running only 440 pages in this edition. More as I actually get into the book, though.
