THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH By Michael Wood, Amazon Publishing/New Harvest $20

In this brief, but compelling bio of Hitchcock, you’ll discover intriguing insights to his most suspenseful movies: “Psycho,” “North by Northwest,” “The Birds,” and others. Author Wood has managed somehow to say more about the man, his early life, personal foibles, and movie accomplishments, than in volumes four times its’ size. Very entertaining. 







The BAZAAR OF BAD DREAMS By Stephen King, Scribner $30

The Master of Suspense returns with, not one, but 20 short, scary stories designed to keep readers up at night. “Mile 81,” leads off when a young boy bicycles up a ramp to an abandoned rest stop where we know something terrible awaits, and are not disappointed. In “Obits,” a newspaper obituary writer discovers when he writes an obit for a living person, that person will shortly die. A man who died of colon cancer is given the chance to live his life over again, but with the same outcome. An elderly judge kayaks out to a secret sand dune and finds the name of someone who will soon die scrawled in the sand. King prefaces each story with brief comments that are entertaining as well.
