Résumé

After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter, the naive young bride arrives at her husband's isolated Cornish estate, Manderley. A change comes over Max, and the friendless woman begins to realise that her husband is little more than a stranger. And in every corner of every room is the phantom of his beautiful first wife, Rebecca, her memory kept alive by the sinister housekeeper, Mrs Danvers.

À propos de l'auteur

Biographie de Daphné Du Maurier

Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. A voracious reader, she was from an early age fascinated by imaginary worlds and even created a male alter ego for herself. Educated at home with her sisters and later in Paris, she began writing short stories and articles in 1928, and in 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published.
A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children. Besides novels, du Maurier published short stories, plays and biographies. Many of her bestselling novels became award-winning films, and in 1969 du Maurier was herself awarded a DBE.
She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books, and when she died in 1989, Margaret Forster wrote in tribute : "No other popular writer has so triumphantly defied classification... She satisfied all the questionable criteria of popular fiction, and yet satisfied too the exacting requirements of "real literature", something very few novelists ever do."
