Daphne du Maurier's Don't Look Now from
New York Review of Books Classics.

Following the New York Review of Books Classics reprint of Geoffrey Household's Rogue Male is a collection of Daphne du Maurier's short stories, Don't Look Now. It includes the really creepy title story, "The Blue Lenses" (which was just broadcast on BBC Radio 7 and can still be heard here), and "The Birds" (filmed by Hitchcock with a screenplay by Evan Hunter).

I buy nearly every book the NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS publishes. Now, to find time to read them...

Yes, I think they are very inexpensive, handsome editions.

Ditto on the time to read them. Sigh.
