Despite the System: Orson Welles Versus the Hollywood Studios

I find it hard to read biographies, but I wanted to know more about Orson Welles - why he was so unsuccessful in Hollywood after his stunning debut with Citizen Kane. This book explains it in great detail, with much background info, and without, I think, sentimentalism. An excellent study of a brilliant artist's journey.
