"The result was a critically acclaimed program for Turner Classic Movies. But the presentation contained only a small fraction of the four-hour interview. This book reprints the complete conversation between the two men and includes a long essay of introduction by Richard Schickel, which places Woody Allen's career in critical perspective. The book also offers insights into Woody's working methods as a writer and the growth of his skill as a director, as well as his own assessment of his work as an actor and his surprising views of his long life in the public eye."--Jacket."
