Enchanted Cornwall: Her Pictorial Memoir

Daphne du Maurier, Author, Piers Dudgeon, Editor, Nick Wright, Photographer Michael Joseph $24.95 (192p) ISBN 978-0-7181-3326-9
In a memoir that appealingly unites text and photographs of her much-loved Cornwall, British author du Maurier, who recently died at age 82, writes in the richly imaginative style that has distinguished her novels: Frenchmen's Creek , Rebecca , Jamaica Inn et al. Heightening du Maurier's impressions of place, Wright's crisp color plates show the sites that inspired the writer to create romance, mystery and terror. Also provided are maps to the wild woods, decayed buildings and great houses traversed here. We learn many tidbits--for example, that Menabilly, the Cornwall home in which the writer lived with her husband and children, was the model for Manderley in My Cousin Rachel . The book is a treasure for du Maurier fans. (Feb.)
