Apologies if this has been posted before (I certainly missed it)

New book, just been reading about it in Total Film magazine where it received a 4 star review.

This would be a translation of a book that appeared in France a few years ago, a compilation of interviews that originally appeared in Positif, the French film magazine.

Wilson, or Michael Henry as his name appears in Positif, has come to be just about Clint's favorite interviewer over the last couple of decades. I tried but failed to get hold of the French edition last year (it seems to be out of print). I wonder if Wilson went back to the original English versions, or if the work is back-translated from the French versions as published?

There's a brief story about it in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Apparently Eastwood on Eastwood (the French edition has the title Eastwood par Eastwood) is not the same book as Wilson's earlier Entretiens avec Clint Eastwood, though both are based on Wilson's thirty years of interviews with Clint.

Quote
The culmination of a 30-year-long collaboration between Clint Eastwood and the critic and documentary film-maker Michael Henry Wilson, Eastwood on Eastwood is a rare and intimate recount of the actor and director's prolific career.

Eastwood engages with Wilson in question-and-answer sessions dealing with subjects close to his heart: jazz and cinema, Carmel in California (where he served as mayor), and Hollywood, as well as providing fascinating insights into the thinking behind each of his films. The book includes many photographs from Eastwood's private collection, notably from his youth and early career.

Quite interesting book,including Eastwood interviews with the author through various stages of his career.
Sort of a commentary upon his films, that could be included in a special edition DVD occasion.
Great illustration also,with a few unseen pics.

Buy it...
