About the Book

This edition of Herzog on Herzog presents a completely new set of interviews in which Werner Herzog discusses his career from its very beginnings to his most recent productions.

Herzog was once hailed by Francois Truffaut as the most important director alive. Famous for his frequent collaborations with mercurial actor Klaus Kinski - including the epics Aguirre, the Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo, and the terrifying Nosferatu - and more recently with documentaries such as Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Into the Abyss, Herzog has built a body of work that is one of the most vital in post-war German cinema.

“[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 ... this book's vast bulk is indispensable. There's so much in it that it could be stocked in almost every aisle of the bookshop, including - such is its assault on cynicism and lethargy - the self-help aisle.”
- Hannah McGill, Independent
“[T]he heftiest and most fascinating one-stop guide that the Herzog fan, or even newcomer, could possibly ask for.”
- Sunday Telegraph
