It was so much fun to guest in character as Werner Herzog on Doug Benson’s Doug Loves Movies podcast for five episodes. Had I gotten to come back a sixth time, I would have brought this book as a prize for the winner of the game. I am not sorry that I get to keep the book.
If you read the preface of this book, you may understand why I love Werner Herzog so much.
"Well, you’ve seen people in a relationship that was very strong to them, and when that relationship ended they were never exactly quite the same afterwards. They were never able to fully trust or embrace or invest in another person again. I wonder if it was sort of along those kind of lines. Once you’ve lost that love of your life or that person you are connected to, somehow you’re in a different place the whole rest of your life. You’d be very, very lucky if you had anything like it again. I’ve seen that happen with some friends and people I know. They’re changed forever from a relationship that didn’t work out. I could see that kind of applying to this too, maybe."
