Description


A heady cocktail of sex and trauma, refracted through the lens of ten of Alfred Hitchcock's iconic movies.

Imagine an episodic memoir that braids together insights about Alfred Hitchcock's movies with the narrative of a woman's life: scenes of growing up in Brooklyn in the sixties and seventies as the daughter of a schizophrenic mother and a traveling salesman father, adolescent sexual traumas, and adult botched marriages and relationships-- all refracted through the lens of ten of Alfred Hitchcock's iconic movies.

In each chapter, the narrator--an award-winning poet--trains her idiosyncratic lens on a different film and then onto the uncanny connections they conjure up from her own life. A singular cliffhanging tale, reminiscent in style of Azar Nafisi's Reading Lolita in Tehran and Helen Macdonald's H Is for Hawk.
