Description

By the bestselling author of RebeccaINTRODUCED BY ALISON LIGHTIn her own words, Daphne du Maurier reveals what led her to write Rebecca, one of the most beloved books of the twentieth century.

This perfect companion volume, The Rebecca Notebook, outlines 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 Cornish woodland, that was to become the setting for her most famous novel: a house which stood derelict, and which she lovingly restored to create her own home - the inspiration for Manderley. Further memories introduce other members of her family: her father Gerald, the famous actor; her grandfather George, the Punch artist; and her cousins, for whom J.
