From the Inside Flap
"Carney is the undisputed monarch of Cassavetes criticism, scholarship, and research. Carney's introduction stands with the best pieces of writing on Cassavetes--and on issues relating to the intersections of art, biography, self-understanding, oral history, and interviewing--that I have ever seen. This is an outstanding new contribution to Cassavetes scholarship."--David Sterritt, Chairman, National Society of Film Critics

When you realize that few people "get" the artists in their lifetime, you begin to understand the role of the scholar and the critic in unpacking the mysteries and questions of the artist. Their work is essential and it in no way detracts from the aura the artist's work gives off.
