LoveReading View on Manderley Forever The Life of Daphne du Maurier

A writer herself, Tatiana de Rosnay understands more than most about the entwined life of an author, their duel existence as themselves and as the creator of characters who live and breathe on the page. It is a recreation of the life of a complex woman from childhood to old age giving the reader an inside view of what it is to be a writer and the process of creating works of fiction. Sue Baker

Manderley Forever The Life of Daphne du Maurier Synopsis

Bestselling novelist Tatiana de Rosnay pays homage to Daphne du Maurier, the writer who influenced her deeply, in this startling and immersive new biography. A portrait of one writer by another, Manderley Forever meticulously recounts a life as mysterious and dramatic as the work it produced, and highlights du Maurier's consuming passion for Cornwall.De Rosnay seamlessly recreates Daphne's childhood, rebellious teens and early years as a writer before exploring the complexities of her marriage and, finally, her cantankerous old age. With a rhythm and intimacy to its prose characteristic of all de Rosnay's works, Manderley Forever is a vividly compelling portrait and celebration of an intriguing, hugely popular and (in her time) critically underrated writer.

Manderley Forever The Life of Daphne du Maurier Press Reviews

A fascinating, in-depth portrait...Through de Rosnay's novel-like narrative, exhaustive research and unbridled imagination, du Maurier's spirit comes alive on the  page. Publishers Weekly

It's impressive how Tatiana was able to recreate the personality of my mother, including her sense of humour. It is very well written and very moving. I'm sure my mother would have loved this book.  Tessa Montgomery d'Alamein, daughter of Daphne du Maurier

Ms. de Rosnay has written a biography that does justice to its heroine.  Wall Street Journal
