Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca is a novel with two heroines, though one is nameless and the other is only a memory. It’s a novel which has a hero who is a murderer. It has a haunting opening sentence which has become justly famous, and since its publication in 1938 Rebecca has enthralled readers and remained Daphne du Maurier’s most popular book.
I first read Rebecca as a teenager, but have re-read it as an adult and often lectured on the book and its author. I find it intriguing and hope that I can make you think about its complexities and themes.
Find out about the woman behind the book, what inspired her to write a novel in which the romantic lead is a wife-killer, and what film versions you can watch. The monograph is only $3, and includes questions for discussion in case your book group would like to do it.
