Ann Willmore on Daphne du Maurier in the February issue of Cornwall Life
In this month's Cornwall Life magazine (February 2018), expert Ann Willmore discusses her lifelong fascination for Daphne du Maurier's life and works, and du Maurier's rising reputation in the literary canon.
Ann writes, "during her lifetime Daphne was labelled as a romantic novelist, which was never accurate. I am sure she would have felt a great satisfaction that views have changed, and that her work is being taken seriously. Daphne's work can simply be read and enjoyed as a jolly good tale or studied at the highest level of academia."
The article also features Ann's top five Daphne du Maurier stories, including the short story 'The Doll', which was discovered and republished as a result of Ann's research, and her top choice, du Maurier's 1949 novel 'The Parasites', a fascinating and much neglected work.
