Today's the day
The wait is over. Manderley Forever by Tatiana de Rosnay is published in the UK today. This is the book that everyone with an interest in Daphne du Maurier should be reading.
Best-selling novelist Tatiana de Rosnay pays homage to Daphne du Maurier, the writer who influenced her deeply, in this startling and immersive new biography. 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 vivid compelling portrait and celebration of an intriguing, hugely popular and (in her time) critically underrated writer.
