'How long he fought with them in the darkness he could not tell, but at last the beating of the wings about him lessened and then withdrew . . . '

A classic of alienation and horror, 'The Birds' was immortalised by Hitchcock in his celebrated film. The five other chilling stories in this collection echo a sense of dislocation and mock man's sense of dominance over the natural world. The mountain paradise of 'Monte Verità' promises immortality, but at a terrible price; a neglected wife haunts her husband in the form of an apple tree; a professional photographer steps out from behind the camera and into his subject's life; a date with a cinema usherette leads to a walk in the cemetery; and a jealous father finds a remedy when three's a crowd . . .

Review:

Building from an almost pastoral scene of autumnal Cornwall, this carefully realistic story builds into unfathomable horror (Lisa Allardice The Guardian)

Book Description:

Daphne du Maurier's chilling short-story collection, the title story was famously made into a film by Hitchcock - perfect for the Halloween and Christmas markets.
