The 1970s was a decade of anger and discontent. Britain endured power cuts and strikes. America pulled out of Vietnam and saw its President resign from office. Feminism and face lifts vied for women's hearts (and minds). And prog rock, punk and disco weren't just music but for some were ways of life. Daphne du Maurier's Don't Look Now was published in 1971 and became a haunting film in 1973. It describes a young couple who travel to Venice to try and escape the pain of their daughter's death. Instead of laying their ghosts to rest, however, they find themselves caught up in a series of increasingly strange and violent events, in a brilliant meditation on loss, fear and fate.

About the Author:

Daphne du Maurier was born of a famous theatrical family in 1907, and had her first novel published in 1931. She became a bestselling author when living in Cornwall writing a series of romantic novels set there, most famously Rebecca which was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock. Two of her short stories, The Birds and Don't Look Now were also made into famous films. Dame Rebecca died in 1989.

Review:

One of the most shocking plot twists in all of literature. It hits you like a freight train * Gillian Flynn * Don't Look Now is a strange and intimate masterpiece: a perfect distillation of the confusion and desire that attend grief, which, as the story progresses, adventures forward through the winding streets of Venice with the logic of nightmare -- Ethan Rutherford * NPR Books *
