dazzling du maurier

from 35.00

#art/#history: her novels provided favourite fodder for hitchcock films & her personal life was possibly more excited &/or sordid than the lives of her characters. gender fluid, she was rumoured to be bisexual - but she hated the 'l-word'. this ambiguity served her creativity well. so did her birth into a rather talented & aristocratic family. as a mother, she tapped away on her typewriter whilst her children & a veritable menagerie ran riot. her son says that his mum (daphne du maurier, who died #otd in 1989) was both her most famous protagonist, 'rebecca', as well as the more retiring mrs dewinter.
