The Cornell Woolrich Omnibus: Rear Window, I Married a Dead Man & Waltz into Darknessby Cornell Woolrich
Mystery aficionado Ellery Queen said of Cornell Woolrich that he can "distill more terror, more excitement, more downright nail-biting suspense out of even the most commonplace happenings than nearly all his competitors." Woolrich's work continues to fascinate readers all around the world, and this trilogy should become a staple in all noir collections. It contains two full length novels (I Married a Dead Man and Waltz into Darkness) and five short stories, including "Rear Window"-works in which one of the genre's consumate "poets of terror" explores all the classic noir themes of loneliness, despair, futility, and occasionally redemption.
Film adaptations of Woolrich works include the Hitchcock classic Rear Window.
Christopher Reeve will star in an upcoming television remake of Rear Window.
