Product Description

About the Author

Suspense fiction writer Cornell Woolrich (1903-1968) has been called the “Father of Noir” and the “Edgar Allan Poe of the 20th Century.” His stories were the basis of such classic suspense films as Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” and Truffaut’s “The Bride Wore Black.” Other well-known works by Woolrich (sometimes writing under the pseudonym William Irish) include “Phantom Lady,” “Black Angel,” “Deadline at Dawn,” and “I Married a Dead Man.”

Typical Woolrich despair March 15 2012
By S. Radler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fans of Cornell Woolrich should enjoy this little compilation of four stories that have heretofore been in other collections. Woolrich's plots are full of holes, but that's not why you read him; you read him for the despair that drips off of every page and the Everyman characters who try and try but rarely succeed -- at anything. The stories are rather Hitchcockian in resolution but I don't want to give anything away. I'm glad I got this for my collection.

Not his best. July 5 2013
By Michael G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The four entries contained in this slim volume (189 pages) are all representative of the kind of fiction Cornell Woolrich is famous for. The standard Woolrichian ingredients of fear, suspense, dread and terror are present in plentiful amounts. You will also find some cloying sentimentality, a couple OHenry type endings and an abundance of rather implausible plot elements.

All in all, Four Novellas of Fear is classic Woolrich. Unfortunately, the quality of stories contained in its pages does not rise to the level of the author's best fiction. Second tier work from a legendary writer.

Cornell Woolrich is deceptively easy reading Nov. 28 2012
By Wendy T. Merckel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
These stories are incredibly good, satisfying in a way unlike anything else I've ever read. They simply don't go where any other writer goes.

Reading Pleasure March 9 2011
By Robert T. Shea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I buy books for my personal reading pleasure and Cornell Woolrich is one of my favorite deceased authors. I don't believe in reviewing books that I have read because I think each reader should make his own discoveries on authors that he would enjoy reading.
