About this title

Synopsis:

A review: "Du Maurier has a clear talent for writing intelligent, engaging prose in a very accessible, clear style. Her characters are real, and their conversations are completely believable. My favorite of the five tales featured here was the title story; like du Maurier's classic novel Rebecca, this is a taunt psychological thriller with a surprise ending. In the second story, "The Breakthrough," the standard search for life after death is presented in a unique light. My least-favorite story of the book was the third, "Not After Midnight," as it had a disappointing ending which I still don't fully understand. In the fourth story, "A Border-line Case," the characters are less believable than is typical for du Maurier, yet the story is still worthwhile. Finally, for the last tale, "The Way of the Cross," du Maurier takes a different tact by telling the story from the perspectives of several main characters rather than just one, and the positive result is less thriller, more human interest. du Maurier is an excellent storyteller, and most readers are likely to find something to praise in at least one of this book's well-written stories."

About the Author:

DAPHNE DU MAURIER (1907-1989)was the daughter of the legendary actor-manager Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author of the vastly successful late-Victorian novel Trilby and cartoonist for the magazine Punch. She grew up in London and Cornwall, where she would settle as an adult. Du Maurier published her first novel when she was twenty-three and would go on to write seventeen more, many of them best-sellers, including My Cousin Rachel, Jamaica Inn, and Rebecca, one of the most popular novels of the twentieth century. In addition to her fiction, du Maurier wrote several family biographies, a biography of Branwell Brontë, a study of Cornwall, two plays, and a good deal of journalism. She was married to Tommy “Boy” Browning and was the mother of three children.

PATRICK MCGRATH is the author of two story collections and seven novels, including Port Mungo, Dr. Haggard’s Disease, Spider, (which he also adapted for the screen), and most recently, Trauma. Martha Peake: A Novel of the Revolution won Italy’s Premio Flaiano Prize, and his 1996 novel, Asylum, was short-listed for both the Whitbread and the Guardianfiction prizes. McGrath is the co-editor of a collection of short fiction, The New Gothic. He lives in New York.
