Just read Woody Allen’s autobiogarphy Apropos of Nothing. It is surprisingly blunt about various aspects of his life, and goes into detail re the events surrounding hos controversial relationship with Soon-Yi.
But i enjoyed his reportage, especially the stuff about the sixties, where he worked with Sellers, O’Toole, Orson Welles and others.
He insists he is not an intellectual, and goes out of way to demonstrate how ordinary he is when it comes to his thinking abilities. But i don’t know…is this false modesty? I mean, look at the title of this book…what the hell does that mean?
On the other hand perhaps having knowledge is not the same as being an intellectual.
