From the cover: “Michael Ondaatje spent seven years writing his novel Anil’s Ghost. When he met veteran film and sound editor Walter Murch he found a like-minded man bringing a detailed and subtle perfection to his craft. Murch has worked on some of the most iconic films of our times such as the Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, and the adaptation of Ondaatje’s Booker Prize-winning novel The English Patient.
The Conversations is a compelling series of discussions between the two men about editing and filmmaking, from the first stage of script writing to the final stage of the sound mix. Articulate, humorous and enlightening, it explains how films are made, how they work, how they go wrong and how they can be saved.”
