An interview about Rebecca with Dr Laura Varnam and the Five Books website

Ahead of the release of the new Netflix adaptation of Du Maurierís Rebecca, the website Five Books interviewed expert Dr Laura Varnam (University College, Oxford) about the novel.

In 2018 Laura talked to Five Books about her top Du Maurier recommendations aside from Rebecca.

This time Laura talked about the importance of Rebecca to Du Maurierís reputation and within her canon of works, and she explored a range of topics including the novelís depiction of the nameless narrator, Rebeccaís relationship with Jane Eyre, the inspiration for Manderley, and the Hitchcock adaptation.
