SWF Seeks Same
When they made a movie based on John Lutz's SWF Seeks Same, they changed the title somewhat. Single White Female is the name of the now-famous 1992 film starring Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh, but in some ways, the original title serves the story better. The novel and film both are about sameness, about one person wanting to be the same as another, encroaching upon and, at times, actually usurping the other's identity. When Allie Jones, searching for a new roommate, places the add "SWF ... more info>>

The Wheel Spins: Basis for The Lady Vanishes
Best known as the basis for Hitchcock's classic early film, The Lady Vanishes, Ethel White's The Wheel Spins is a gripping and accomplished work in its own right.

The House of Dr. Edwardes
The single most striking quality of Francis Beeding's The House of Doctor Edwardes is the sense of foreboding and uncertainty that pervades every scene, the hallmarks of many great mystery. From the very first page of the prologue, Beeding makes the very air the characters live and breathe in seem to crackle with an ominous electricity. It is surely what appealed to Alfred Hitchcock when he found in Beeding's work the inspiration for his classic, unforgettable film, Spellbound. Fans of Hitchcock... more info>>
