an invigorating, insightful, and original volume. The focus on the sources of Hitchcock s plots and ideas never diminishes the genius of Hitchcock. The real reward here is the comparison between literary achievement and cinematic achievement. CHOICE
The complexity and sweep of this book are staggering; this is a one-stop source for information on the literary origins of Hitchcock s works. This is a one-of-a-kind text, which fills a real niche in both film and Hitchcock studies. Wheeler Winston Dixon, James Ryan Professor of Film Studies, University of Nebraska at Lincoln
The book is replete with fresh insights into particular films and source texts, fresh approaches to the work of a hugely important and influential screen artist, and fresh evidence for the value of adaptation studies. David Sterritt, author of The Films of Alfred Hitchcock"
