Reviews

Praise for "Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed" Named one of the best film books of 2014 by "The Independent "and" Brain Pickings" "[A] magnificent volume of interviews. . . This book presents an opportunity to enjoy extended musings from one of the most fascinating minds to which we are fortunate enough to have collective access. . . Reading [Herzog] expounding on his myriad interests and obsessions, in tones that are full and fluent without ever crossing into pretentiousness or obscurity, is a tonic for the brain." --Hannah McGill, "The Independent ""Extraordinary . . . the book is so full of marvelous passages that one could go on quoting forever . . . What is remarkable about "A Guide for the Perplexed" . . . is the access it provides to the furious inner excitement of one of the great artists . . . of our time." --Francine Prose, "Prospect"""A Guide for the Perplexed" is a blockbuster performance of telling and hiding: remembering, denying, cursing, reliving traumas and triumphs; picking over all the project, triumphant and forgotten. This much revised and updated version of the one published in 2002 is an invaluable guide to a head-fought life and career. It is a black bible of verbiage, controlled rants and recollections, fit to stand beside any of the wandering director's savage pilgrimages." --Iain Sinclair, "The Times Literary Supplement""This month, Faber published "A Guide for the Perplexed," a compendium of conversations between Herzog and the writer Paul Cronin . . . I'm putting my neck out and saying it's the best book I've read all year." --Nathalie Olah, "Vice""A spectacular read . . . offering a rare glimpse of one of the most ravenously imaginative minds of our time." --Maria Popova, "Brain Pickings""The heftiest and most fascinating one-stop guide that the Herzog fan, or even newcomer, could possibly ask for." --Seven Magazine "[A] magnificent volume of interviews. . .
