Orson Welles, By Paolo Mereghetti

Astonishing value for money, this monograph on the legendary director is worth getting for the pictures alone. The double-page spreads include some of the most striking stills in the history of cinema: Welles and Joseph Cotten surrounded by bales of the New York Inquirer from Citizen Kane;multiple mirror images of Rita Heyworth from The Lady from Shanghai. Equally remarkable is a 1942 shot of Heyworth sitting next to Randolph Hearst, the resentful model for Citizen Kane. Five years later, at the fag-end of her marriage to Welles, Heyworth starred in The Lady from Shanghai. As Paolo Mereghetti notes, "The film ends with a devastating gesture of contempt for star status as the hero walks away from the dying Heyworth."

24-Hour Room Service: PuLi Hotel and Spa, Shanghai

Shanghai is a city of restless reinvention, of quick-fire change, of shiny and new and bigger and better and taller and wider and more expensive and louder and louder and... frankly, it all gets a bit much after a while. Time, perhaps, for an Urban Resort Concept.
