Heron Books Daphne du Maurier Collection 19 Volumes
The most skilful romantic novelist of our time.
Romance flows from every page of Daphne du Maurier’s ‘Cornish’ novels. Hers is a magic world of intrigue and passion . . . of beautiful, mysterious women . . . of handsome men . . . of crinoline dresses, lace cuffs and plumed hats . . . of clashing blades and wild rides across the windswept Cornish moors. Can you wonder that so many of them have been made into star-studded films – Rebecca . . . Frenchman’s Creek . . . Jamaica Inn . . . My Cousin Rachel.
Yet Daphne du Maurier’s novels are so much more than ‘romantic’, for she has a deep interest in psychology and an understanding of the frailties of human nature, which she weaves into her novels to create a quietly disturbing atmosphere of suspense. She has a perception and insight that is, in the words of Wilfred De’Ath, as profound as that of any living author. Of ‘Rebecca’, one of the volumes in this lovely edition, he said “as faultless a novel as any in our language”. Its strange, unforgettable power has been compared with Emily Brontë’s ‘Wuthering Heights’, Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘L’Etranger’ by Albert Camus.
These exquisite golden embellished volumes are bound in richly grained Kidron of soft, summer green.
