Daphne du Maurier in 1938, the year Rebecca was published


Rose Staveley-Wadham has written a fabulous article on the passage of Daphne du Maurierís most popular and well-known novel Rebecca from publication, to bestseller, to West End play, and then Oscar-winning movie. 

As we wait for next Wednesday (21st October) and the streaming of the new Netflix adaptation of Rebecca, it is an absolute joy to read this article and to see some of the archive extracts that Rose has used.
