‘Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again’ – the iconic opening line of du Maurier’s most famous novel. 

Having destroyed her first attempt at the novel, du Maurier returned to writing it whilst in Egypt, where she and her soldier husband were stationed in Alexandria. Published in 1938, it has never gone out of print and is one of the great international bestsellers.

A nice gift copy.
