Daphne Du Maurier PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Daphne Du Maurier free pdf "Rebecca", published in 1938, brought its author instant international acclaim, capturing the popular imagination in a way that few other 20th-century novels have done, with its haunting atmosphere of suspense and mystery. But the more fame this and her other books encouraged, the more reclusive Daphne du Maurier became. Drawing on hitherto unpublished private letters and papers, and with the co-operation of du Maurier's family, Margaret Forster explores the novelist's personal dramas: the stifling relationship with her father, Gerald du Maurier, her troubled marriage to war hero "Boy" Browning, her wartime love affair, and her deep friendship with the actress Gertrude Lawrence. Forster also looks behind the relaxed and charming facade to expose the workings of a complex and emotional character whose passionate and often violent stories possibly mirrored her own fantasy-life more than has been generally recognized. The book won the Macallan/Writers' Guild 1993 Non-fiction Award.
