Mistresses of Suspense:
Joan Harrison and the Women Behind Hitchcock
Edgar award-winning author Christina Lane reveals the work of writer-producer Joan Harrison (Rebecca, Suspicion, Foreign Correspondent) and the many women who helped shape Alfred Hitchcock’s cinematic vision. She provides a fresh take on the ‘master’ and the reasons why he owed so much of his inspiration to the work of the creative women in his professional orbit.
Christina Lane’s Phantom Lady: Hollywood Producer Joan Harrison, the Forgotten Woman Behind Hitchcock won both the Edgar Award and Agatha Award in the Biography category and was selected by Library Journal as one of the Best Books of 2020.
