Werner Herzog Book Reading in NYC!!!
Lordy, lordy, lordy. Tomorrow evening (Friday, June 26th, 7pm) at the McNally Jackson bookstore in SoHo, the one-and-only Werner Herzog will be reading from his new book Conquest of the Useless, which completes the triptych that began with Fitzcarraldo and was followed by Les Blank’s Burden of Dreams. Conquest of the Useless collects Herzog’s personal, diary-like musings scribed during that intense production. Reading Herzog’s words on the page and merely imagining him speaking them is a yummy enough concept, but actually watching him read them aloud, funky fresh in the flesh? Yes, please!
