Daphne DuMaurier's The Doll

Rediscovered work by DuMaurier. "Lost for more than 70 years, this dark story of a man's obsessive passion for Rebecca, a mysterious violinist, hasn't been published since it appeared in a small collection in 1937."

Moody, gothic, melodramatic, breathless, frightful, and fine. Thanks, bardophile. In the past couple of days I picked up a copy of Terry Carr's anthology The Others for du Maurier's 1959 story "The Blue Lenses." Some dark, wonderful stuff.

Oooh, what a treat this gloomy Saturday morning in Hell's Kitchen. I adore Daphne du Maurier and haven't read any in ages. Thanks for this treasure.

Oooooo, thank-you. Delightfully creepy. I need to track down a copy of Don't Look Now to finish off the evening.
