"Daphne du Maurier was a favorite of the late great Alfred Hitchcock. 

Most famous, perhaps, 

for her psychologically intense novels (e.g., REBECCA), 

her short stories often rose even more 

to the level of true masterpiece. 

This book contains six of these, made ever more atmospheric 

by Michael Foreman's wonderfully unsettling watercolors. 

It's a perfect combination. 

Du Maurier's tales are a kind of literary level Twilight Zone. 

Included in this collection is the all-time classic "The Birds,"

though the others (every one) are equally as good. 

If you've never read the original story, "The Birds" 

offers an additional treat in that we're able to see 

both du Maurier's own gift

 of imagination and Hitchcock's ability to adapt

 and change a story in creating a film."
