Friday read: Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca is a book I seem to know a lot about without having actually read it.

Like many people, I know the opening line, ‘Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.’ I know about some of the characters. Mrs Danvers springs to mind. I’m aware of its popularity and focus on the gothic, but I’ve never actually read it.

That’s about to change. Rebecca is one of the set texts on my twentieth century literature module. I’ve made a start reading it today.
