Diana Holmes and Robert Ingram (Authors and Series Editors): François Truffaut, French Film Directors Series, Manchester University Press (1998).

>>>Truffaut shot to fame in 1959 with his first film Les 400 Coups, a semi-autobiographical narrative shot in the low-budget neo-realist style of the emerging Nouvelle Vague. He went on to make twenty-three films in twenty-six years, films which have entertained, provoked debate and caused controversy. This fresh appraisal of his work provides a useful socio-political contextualization and gives an overview of his films and film-making methods, shedding new light on key aspects such as sexual politics, the construction of masculinity, the exploitation of genre and the tension throughout the films between the "absolute" and the "provisional." <<<Publisher's blurb

A long and productive life as a director - like Chabrol's (1930-2010, with well over fifty films), does not necessarily make for an easy assessment - like Truffaut's short and productive life (1932-1984, with twenty-four films). already during his lifetime, Truffaut had two good biographical books printed, later updated, by de Baecque & Toubiana and by Annette Insdorf, respectively, and more have been coming - see eg The Complete Films (Paperback) Taschen, which I have also reviewed here (fbuk1 Tout Truffaut - The Complete Films 15/3/2011 and fbuk2-3 François Truffaut, Cinéaste 16/9/2011).
