Synopsis

BY THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF REBECCA

INTRODUCED BY ALISON LIGHT

'The genuine, thoughtful voice of a woman whose works have been loved by millions' NEW YORK TIMES

'Daphne du Maurier has no equal' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

'Du Maurier created a scale by which modern women can measure their feelings' STEPHEN KING

The Rebecca Notebook provides an unparalleled insight into the mastery of a writer's craft and the inner vision that made du Maurier a household name.

One of the great international bestsellers, Rebecca also inspired a film, a play and television dramas. This perfect companion volume, The Rebecca Notebook, outlines just how Rebecca came to be written, tracing its origins, developments and the directions it might have taken. The author reveals how she first came upon the secret house, hidden deep in the Cornish woodland, that was to become the romantic setting for her most famous novel: a house which stood derelict, and which she lovingly restored to create her own home.

The accompanying Memories introduce other members of her family: her father Gerald, the famous actor; her grandfather George, whose Punch drawings made him world famous; and her cousins, for whom J. M. Barrie wrote Peter Pan.
