Poems inspired by the films of the dark genius of suspense. Where Hitchcock left off, these poems move on into unexpected and sometimes disturbing places. James Robertson is a poet and fiction writer, author of Scottish Ghost Stories, The Ragged Man's Complaint, Sound-Shadow, and co-editor of the Dictionary of Scottish Quotations. He is a regular reviewer for Scotland on Sunday. His first novel The Fanatic has just been published by Fourth Estate.
"Impressive and highly enjoyable. Robertson demonstrates his/our complicity in Hitchcock's world of blondes and voyeurs and terror. The conversational, snatchily syntax-ed, yet finely controlled free verse of some of these poems recalls the great Edwin Morgan in one of his many modes." - Angus Calder.
"Stunning" - SB Kelly, Scotland on Sunday.
