MEDIA REVIEWS
A very insightful window into a creative period that was all too short. * Communication Booknotes Quarterly *
Heyer's brilliance in developing this book is based on formidable research into Welles' creative output, interviews, books, papers, studies, and transcripts of every aspect or person that entered Welles's career.... Impressive -- Anne Leighton * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online *
At last Orson Welles's radio work gets the attention it deserves! Paul Heyer makes the compelling case that Welles should be regarded as a formidable creative force in radio as much as he is in film and theater, backing it up with impressive research and a lively, engaging writing style. This fascinating study sheds light not just on Welles's work generally, but on U.S. radio history and the emergence of sound as an art form. -- Michele Hilmes, author of Radio Voices: American Broadcasting, 1922-1952
