About the book
In a career that spanned sixty years, Alfred Hitchcock made more than fifty feature-length films and hosted his own television series, transforming the thriller genre in the twentieth 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.

Praise for Hitchcock, Piece by Piece:

"Few people alive know as much about Hitchcock as Bouzereau." 
--Leonard Maltin
