His first was Ferocious Reality: Documentary According to Werner Herzog, which was published by Minnesota UP in fall 2012. He is now at work on his third, a monograph, Aguirre, the Wrath of God for Palgrave-MacMillan’s prestigious British Film Iinstitute’s series, BFI Film Classics. At age 71, Herzog continues to make films, which means that Eric may not be done yet writing about him.
