Description-

  • In The Twelve Lives of Alfred Hitchcock, Edward White explores the Hitchcock phenomenon—what defines it, how it was invented, what it reveals about the man at its core, and how its legacy continues to shape our cultural world. The book's twelve chapters illuminate different aspects of Hitchcock's life and work: "The Boy Who Couldn't Grow Up," "The Murderer," "The Auteur," "The Womanizer," "The Fat Man," "The Dandy," "The Family Man," "The Voyeur," "The Entertainer," "The Pioneer," "The Londoner," and "The Man of God." Each of these angles reveals something fundamental about the man he was and the mythological creature he has become, presenting not just the life Hitchcock lived but also the various versions of himself that he projected and those projected on his behalf. White's portrayal illuminates a vital truth: Hitchcock was more than a Hollywood titan; he was the definitive modern artist, and his significance reaches far beyond the confines of cinema.

About the Author-

  • Edward White is the author of The Tastemaker: Carl Van Vechten and the Birth of Modern America and has written for publications including The Paris Review. He lives in England.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Qarie Marshall's amiable tone takes some of the academic edge off this fascinating deep dive into the influences, life, and legacy of the world's most famous director. The episodic structure makes for easy listening and uses such personae as auteur, womanizer, and the fat man to cast different lights on Hitchcock. Marshall's even delivery has just a touch of a smile to it, mirroring the droll humor of the subject. A strong case is made for Hitchcock's cultural importance, and there's much to enjoy for any film history buff. While being an avid Hitchcock watcher isn't required, beware of spoilers for most of his films, including lesser-known ones. S.T.C. � AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine
