Truffaut's classic interview book is a great place to start.

As for literary sources to Hitchcock's movies, I think the most fascinating is one that was never filmed. It says in Truffaut's book that right after "Family Plot", Hitchcock considered filming Elmore Leonard's _Unknown Man No. 89_ but finally scrapped the idea. Hitchcock was of course way past his prime then, but the idea of him doing Leonard is still fascinating.
