[Longhorn Review] Rebecca / Daphne du Maurier.

Material Type: All, Books — Tags: romantic, staff pick — Posted on February 10, 2012, 3:39 pm

By: Daphne du Maurier

“Last Night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” So begins du Maurier’s 1938 romantic novel, Rebecca. The line also begins the Alfred Hitchcock film version, which was named Best Picture for 1940. This work is usually described as Gothic fiction, but as really good Gothic fiction. Critics credit du Maurier’s storytelling skills. Romantics-at-heart should expect to find a good read (or a film of note) in the surprising adventures of the second Mrs. de Winter.
