Manderley Forever: The Life of Daphne du Maurier
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. De Rosnay seamlessly recreates Daphne’s childhood, rebellious teens and early years as a writer before exploring the complexities of her marriage and, finally, 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 (in her time) critically underrated writer.
