Hitchcock s Appetites Book Description :

This book is open access and available on www.bloomsburycollections.com. It is funded by Knowledge Unlatched.

Whereas most critics and biographers of the great director are content to consign his large figure and larger appetite to colorful anecdotes of his private life, McKittrick argues that our understanding of Hitchcock's films, his creative process, and his artistic mind are incomplete without considering his lived experience as a fat man. Using archival research of his publicity, script collaboration, and personal communications with his producers, in tandem with close textual readings of his films, fem...
