[Cornell Woolrich] epub Nightwebs Summary

Review Nightwebs

Movies like Hitchcock's Rear Window and Truffaut's The Bride wore Black This collection brings together twelve of his finest most powerful and disturbing talesContains the stories Graves for the Living The Red Tide The Corpse Next Door You'll Never See Me Again Dusk to Dawn Murder. Woolrich was insanely prolific especially for such a supposedly fragile alcoholic By the time I found this book in my store I thought I d read most of his short stories but almost all of these were new to me and great late night fun Like Highsmith he s not the tightest plot spinner but the psychologicalemotional pull of his writing is brutally good At the end of this is a little hidden gem a chapter from the final novel he was working on The Loner Definitely seemed like strong work plowing new fields too bad he couldn t have hung on longer with gasping liver and wall rattling nightmares
