A CliffsNotes-type guidebook for less seasoned Hitchcock fans to an understanding of "The Birds" that draws from recognized scholarship of the director's techniques, the author's scene-by-scene interpretations and comparisons with the short story by Daphne du Maurier that was the premise for the movie. This is intended for those who have already seen the film and want to experience it again and possibly see aspects they did not notice before.
Dale Andrew White is the author of the interview collection "Encounters with Authors," which is available on Kindle, and the short story collections "Moe Howard Died For Our Sins" and "Return of the Dittos," which are available in paperback and on Kindle. His Kindle books also include "Disaster on the Sunshine Skyway," "'Psycho' Analysis: an interpretation of Alfred Hitchcock's cinematic masterpiece," "A Field Guide to Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds,'" and "Tales of Old Florida."
White's humorous short stories have appeared in Modern Short Stories, Comic Relief, The MacGuffin, Nuthouse, Beyond Science Fiction & Fantasy and numerous other magazines and journals.
Midwest Book Review calls him "a natural born storyteller with an especial flair for blending fantasy, whimsy, satire and a fevered imagination into original stories that are replete with ribald humor and reader-engaging novelty."
BookReview.com warns that to open a Dale Andrew White short story collection "is to invite trouble - and probably enjoy it."
