are reviews the book has received:
Travers, Rolling Stone
"Jeff Kraft and Aaron Leventhal make it great fun to play
lost-and-found in Htichcock's San Francisco. The book they've create
is unique, haunting, and indispensable."
LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Anything that allows you to see classics with fresh eyes is
welcome. But Footsteps In The Fog is a particular gem that not only
makes Hitchcock alive with the breathing presence of San Francisco
-- but makes San Francisco alive with the ghost of Hitchcock movies.
The book is a pleasure from start to finish."
"Footsteps In The Fog doesn't just retrace Hitchcock's footsteps
entertainingly, and with an eye for details that bring back some
of the cinema's most classic chills, it's also an invaluable time
capsule. The contrast between what was and what is made me want
to book the next flight to California, so I could see Hitchcock's
San Francisco for myself before any more of its disappears!"
Turan, Los Angeles Times
"As haunting as its evocative title, Footsteps In The Fog shows
us exactly what locations the great director used to create what
might be the most elegantly spooky vision of an American city ever
put on film."
Maltin, Entertainment Tonight
"Like many people, I'm hooked on the idea of finding famous
movie locations in real life. I can't think of a better subject
for such a pursuit than Hitchcock and San Francisco."
Wahl, KRON TV/KCRBS Radio
"A fun ride through Hitchcock-land. See the thriller, visit
"Hithcock fans Jeff Kraft and Aaron Leventhal have assembled
a meticulously researched work describing the trail the suspense
master blazed through the greater San Francisco Bay Area... The
book is an essential part of any Hitchcock fan's collection, and
it would be a valuable read for Northern California residents who
may not know the pop culture history behind many of their hometown's
Chris Watson, Santa Cruz Sentinal
in the Fog... is a well-documented and illustrated feast of cinematic
trivia that will please Hitchcock fans the world over, especially
those in Northern California."
