Francois Truffaut was the foremost director of French New Wave cinema, and this voluminous, well-annotated book offers a lifelong record of his correspondence. It provides a self-portrait in words of Truffaut 's generous, lively personality as well as his valued opinions on film theory and criticism. Within this collection are letters to Alfred Hitchcock, Louis Malle, Jean-Luc Godard, and many up-and-coming screen-writers Truffaut was eager to nurture. What emerges is an insightful account of both the film industry and one of its most influential, articulate directors.
