The Doll: The Lost Short Stories by Daphne du Maurier

The lost stories of Daphne du Maurier, collected in one volume for the first time.

Before she wrote Rebecca, the novel that would cement her reputation as a twentieth-century literary giant, a young Daphne du Maurier penned short fiction in which she explored the images, themes, and concerns that informed her later work. Originally published in periodicals during the early 1930s, many of these stories never found their way into print again . . . until now.

Tales of human frailty and obsession, and of romance gone tragically awry, the thirteen stories in The Doll showcase an exciting budding talent before she went on to write one of the most beloved novels of all time. In these pages, a waterlogged notebook washes ashore revealing a dark story of jealousy and obsession, a vicar coaches a young couple divided by class issues, and an older man falls perilously in love with a much younger woman—with each tale demonstrating du Maurier’s extraordinary storytelling gifts and her deep understanding of human nature.

His father was too strict on him, creating a kind of barrier between them. This small family lived in Bangalore, the Garden City of India.

We were in Australia with my brother, my ex-girlfriend and my cousin. We were going to the east in direction to Cains, a city in Queensland. We had to pass through Cains because it was the shortest route to come back home to Melbourne. We were using a satnav, but in Australia there are more cities with the same name. So, we changed the wrong destination with the right destination. One year ago I got lost in Aspromonte during a journey with my friends when we were travelling toward the Calabrian Mountains. I have always loved travelling, so, with a few friends I decided to move and discover a new place in the wild Aspromonte….
