You are in luck!

There are two books, one is about the making of, and the other would only have a section about, both are by Powell.

The one you want is Edge of the World: The Making of a Film. It's OOP, but there are used copies for sale at Amazon.

I have a copy of the first part of Powell's autobiography, A Life in Movies, but it's probably hiding in the garage. There is very little about the film in the second part of his bio, Million Dollar Movie.

Well deep, now you can add Tales of Hoffmann to your rental queue and find out why. Who knows, you might just enjoy it!

Speaking of Michael Powell, has anyone been watching his films on TMC? I hadn't seen A Matter of Life and Death since I was a lad and I have to say that the first ten minutes were extraordinary, as is most of the film. Too bad it's not on DVD this side of the pond...
