Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace by David Lipsky

Starts Friday, August 21 at the Loft

The End of the Tour tells the story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and celebrated novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, Infinite Jest.  Hitting the road together on the last leg of a long book tour, the journalist and his subject seem to develop a tenuous yet intense relationship.

My Lunches With Orson by Peter Biskind

"There have long been rumors of a lost cache of tapes containing private conversations between Orson Welles and his friend the director Henry Jaglom, recorded over regular lunches in the years before Welles died. The tapes, gathering dust in a garage, did indeed exist, and this book reveals for the first time what they contain. Here is Welles as he has never been seen before: talking intimately, disclosing personal secrets, reflecting on the highs and lows of his astonishing career, the people he knew--FDR, Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, Laurence Olivier, David Selznick, Rita Hayworth, and more--and the many disappointments of his last years"

The Loft is showing an Orson Welles movie every Thursday in May at 7:00pm
