On this day in literature . . .

~ 1907 ~ Daphne du Maurier is born in London.













Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.

- opening sentence of Rebecca (1938), a book perhaps best
read in a drafty English castle filled with mysterious noises . . .
but if that can't be accomplished, reading this book late
at night will do just as well.

I actually experienced this story for the first time by listening to it on tape. I enjoyed it immensely. (I just couldn't believe the ending!)

Hi Andrea-
Discovered your blog after a comment left on Stephen and JA's blog. I've never read Rebecca but I love, love, love the movies based on this book- especially the one made by BBC. If you would like to borrow it, I have it:)
