This companion to the work of one of Britain's best-loved novelists celebrates the centenary of her birth.

Synopsis

Daphne du Maurier Companion by

Daphne du Maurier is one of Britain’s best-loved authors, her writing capturing the imagination in a way that few have been able to equal. Rebecca, her most famous novel, was a huge success on first publication and brought du Maurier international fame. This enduring classic remains one of the nation’s favourite books.

In this celebration of Daphne du Maurier’s life and achievements, today’s leading writers, critics and academics discuss the novels, short stories and biographies that made her one of the most spellbinding and genre-defying authors of her generation. The film versions of her books are also explored, including Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and The Birds and Nicholas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now. Featuring interviews with du Maurier’s family and a long-lost short story by the author herself, this is the indispensable companion to her work.

Contributors include Sarah Dunant, Sally Beauman, Margaret Forster, Antonia Fraser, Michael Holroyd, Lisa Jardine, Julie Myerson, Justine Picardie and Minette Walters
