Item Details

Baker & Taylor
Examines the life and work of the English novelist and discusses the influence of her famous father and grandfather on her writing.

Book News
Auerbach (history and literature, University of Pennsylvania) examines the writer of depth and recklessness now largely known only as the author of Rebecca , looking at how her sharp-edged fiction, with its brutal and often perverse family relationships, has been softened in film adaptations of her work. She reads both du Maurier's life in her writings, and the sensibility of a vanished class and time that haunts the fringes of our own age. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
