MANDERLEY FOREVER A Biography of Daphne du Maurier

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Charlotte Wright

Biography & Memoir • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Charlotte Wright's assurance, crisp enunciation, and fine sense of nuance give voice to a life lived freely and bravely, within and without social conventions. De Rosnay's empathetic narrative moves through the significant roles du Maurier played in her life: daughter of a celebrated artistic family, fledgling novelist, young bride and mother of three, and author who experienced commercial success and critical disappointment. Du Maurier's periodic crushes on strong, dynamic women such as Ellen Doubleday, wife of her American publisher, and actress Gertrude Lawrence parallel the compelling, often ambiguous heroines who define novels like REBECCA and MY COUSIN RACHEL. This is a fascinating biography for anyone interested in how novelists work, and is sure to awaken new interest in this fine, underrated author. D.A.W.
