About the Author

From the 1930s until his death in 1968, Cornell Woolrich riveted the reading public with his mystery, suspense, and horror stories. Classic films like Hitchcock's Rear Window and Trauffaut's The Bride Wore Black and novels like Night has a Thousand Eyes and The Black Angel earned Woolrich epithets like the twentieth century's Edgar Allen Poe and the father of noir.

Reviews

Along with Raymond Chandler, Cornell Woolrich practically invented the genre of noir.
You can palpably feel the agony in Woolrich and his work.--James Ellroy
Woolrich was a master of the form.--Tom Nolan
Nothing beats a tale of fatalistic dread by the supreme master of suspense, Cornell Woolrich, whose novels and short stories define the essence of noir nihilism.--Marilyn Stasio
Woolrich devised and used instruments of psychological torture--his stories.
