Les Oiseaux


In the heart of the night, the east wind whips around the cliff. Between two gusts, swarms of birds knock at the windows. But it is not fear that precipitates them with such force towards the world of men...
We will find here - and no less terrifying - the story that inspired his masterpiece to the master of anguish, Alfred Hitchcock. In the other short stories of this collection, the horror is more insidious, the fantastic hardly foreign to reality. All it takes is an apple tree with a strangely human shape, or a cinema usherette that a young mechanic wants to follow after the show... And the great English novelist, author of Rebecca and The Jamaica Inn, leads us towards the mystery with small steps, small touches, according to a subtle, singularly modern writing.
