Scorsese is widely considered to be one of the most significant and influential American filmmakers of his eraHalf autobiography, half master film class, Conversations with Scorsese ($20) is the result of a series of late-night discussions between Marty and his friend Richard Schickel.

Topics range from Scorsese's sickly childhood on the streets of New York's Little Italy to his experiences at NYU, with plenty of time for discussion about his films, career, and Hollywood in general along the way. At 440+ pages, it's not a casual read, but it is a must read for any true film fan.
