Hitchcock: Piece by Piece [With Facsimile Memorabilia]


Publisher Marketing: In a career that spanned 60 years, Alfred Hitchcock made more than 50 feature-length films and hosted his own television series, transforming the thriller genre in the 20th century. Author Laurent Bouzereau puts this incredible canon into perspective, examining the master's life thematically: his archetypal anti-heroes; his complicated female characters; his charming villains; and something Bouzereau calls "the Hitchcock touch" -- those elements of film that are, quite simply, Hitchcockian. 

With a foreword by Hitchcock's daughter, Patricia Hitchcock O'Connell, "Hitchcock, Piece by Piece" is packed with photographs from the family's archive, many of which have never been published before, plus removable facsimile memorabilia such as letters, memos, and snapshots, which frame the story of the director's life and work.
