Tatiana de Rosnay avec Manderley Forever: The Life of Daphne du Maurier
An enthralling biography of Daphne du Maurier, the legendary author of novels including Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel.
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. We meet Daphne as a shy seven-year-old, and follow her through her rebellious teens, her early years as a writer, the complexities of her marriage and 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 (at the time) critically underrated writer.
