"Mystery is mystifying; It is an Intellectual thing. Suspense Is an emotional thing." - Alfred Hitchcock"

From the Author

Everything you ever need to know about Hitchcock
The Pocket Essential Alfred Hitchcock by Paul Duncan "The Little Book Of Hitchcock" Crime Time Who was Hitchcock? A fat git who played practical jokes on people? A control freak who humilated others to make himself look better? A little boy afraid of the dark? One of the greatest storytellers of the century? He was all of this and more - 20 years after his death, he is still a household name, his films have been seen by most people in the Western world, and he popularised the action movie format we see every week on the cinema screen. He was both a great artist and dynamite at the box office. What’s in it? As well as an introductory essay, each of Hitchcock’s films is reviewed and analysed. In addition, the effect he has had on the industry is explained - virtually every big action movie of the past three decades has been influenced by his work. Not only that, but there’s a handy reference section listing all the far weightier (and more expensive) books about Hitchcock. An exciting new series of Info Books. Pocket Essentials is a new series for the MTV generation brought up in the three-minute culture. Short, snappy text. Easy to read. Rivetting. Enthusiastic. Fresh. Critical. Packed with facts, backed up with opinion, crammed with information, this is the first step into the world of films and books. This series will spotlight film directors. Paul Duncan is co-founder of Crime Time magazine, edited The Third Degree:Crime Writers In Conversation (available from No Exit), and has written a biography of Gerald Kersh and the Pocket Essential Stanley Kubrick. Praise for Paul Duncan’s previous book: The Third Degree:Crime Writers In Conversation: "Outstanding…guaranteed to intrigue anyone interested in what makes contemporary fiction tick." Philip Oakes, Literary Review "A gripping collection." Brian Case, Time Out Marketing Points: · Alfred Hitchcock’s Centenary celebrations brings him into the public gaze · BBC and mass media coverage of Hitchcock throughout September · Every film examined: Psycho. North By Northwest. Vertigo. Rear Window. The Birds. · One of the world’s most well-known film directors · Little book format is an entry level purchase for many newly-interested by Hitchcock · Film buffs and film students will lap it up
