Dr Laura Varnam in The Independent: 'Why Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca is still popular 80 years on'
Dr Laura Varnam's article on the enduring popularity of du Maurier's 'Rebecca' was republished in The Independent on Friday 2nd March. Laura writes: 'When we return to the novel, 80 years on, and step into the vivid and dangerous dreamworld of Manderley, “secretive and silent as it had always been”, Du Maurier’s creative power cannot be in doubt. We will never be free from Rebecca – nor would we want to be.' Laura will be running a celebration of Rebecca at 80 at Fowey Festival in May.
