Editorial Reviews

Review

“A smart, fluent overview of the director’s life and art, and the mysterious dynamic between the two.” —The New York Times

“A masterful book on the Master of Suspense: like all good movies, it’s over too soon.” —The Seattle Times
 
“Superb, insightful. . . . [A] deft and moving biography.” —The Guardian

“A character portrait . . . guided by a novelist’s skills of characterization and texture.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Ackroyd masters the suspense of Alfred Hitchcock.” —Vanity Fair
 
“Irresistible.” —The Independent (London)
 
“Immaculate and phenomenally readable.” —The Buffalo News
 
“As packed with anecdotes as an after-dinner speech. Everyone, it seems, had a story about Hitch, most of them ghoulish.” —Newsweek
 
“Well written . . . and unusually well attuned to the religious element [of Hitchcock’s movies].” —Financial Times
