9780062080349 â€œDu Maurier is in a class by herself.â€ â€”New York Times Perhaps best known for her immortal gothic masterwork Rebeccaâ€”the basis for the Academy Award-winning motion picture directed by Alfred Hitchcockâ€”Daphne de Maurier began her illustrious writing career penning short stories. In The Doll, thirteen of du Maurierâ€™s early shorter fictional works have been collectedâ€”each story written before the authorâ€™s twenty-third birthday and some in print for the first time since the 1930s. Compelling tales of human foibles and tragic romance, the stories in The Doll represent the emergence of a remarkable literary talent who later went on to create Jamaica Inn, The Birds, and other classic works. This breathtaking collection of short fiction belongs on the bookshelf of every Daphne du Maurier fan.
