Virago Press has been publishing Daphne du Maurier's books for over twenty years. Daphne's books are part of their Virago Modern Classics collection, easily recognisable by Virago's famous dark green spines. They have brought virtually all of her canon of work back into print, each title having a beautifully illustrated cover.

Virago celebrates Daphne's birthday by producing two new pieces of content about her, which are going live on their website and across Virago's social media channels today.  

Where to Start with Daphne du Maurier

They are Where to Start with Daphne du Maurier, a great article in which they talk about some of Daphne du Maurier's most loved novels and short stories, including Rebecca, My Cousin Rachel, The House on the Strand, The Parasites, The Scapegoat, The King's General and The Birds. You can read Where to Start with Daphne du Maurier here

13DduM facts

For the second piece, appropriate because the 13th May marks the 117th anniversary of the birth of Daphne du Maurier, Virago has produced 13 Daphne du Maurier Facts. This fun list might well surprise you with things you did not know. You can read 13 Daphne du Maurier Facts here

A big thank you to Virago for providing us with these new pieces, and a very Happy Birthday to Daphne du Maurier.
