Daphne Du Maurier

a.k.a. Dame Daphne Du Maurier, Lady Browning

Author Code: EDDM

Born: May 13, 1907 - London, England

Died: Apr. 19, 1989 - Fowey, Cornwall, England

The granddaughter of the writer George Du Maurier, Daphne was perhaps destined for a literary career. Some of her early work was published in Bystander magazine. In 1931, she published The Loving Spirit her first novel and which was well-received. In 1932, she married major Frederick Browning (later Lieutenant General Browning of 'A Bridge Too Far' fame) and they had three children. Probably her most famous work, Rebecca, was published in 1938 and was made into both stage adaptations and films. The work was hugely successful and has never gone out of print, selling over 3 million copies. Many of Du Maurier's works became films. Her works are described as Romantic Fiction, although many have a darker, more Gothic side. She led a mostly recluse life, at least with regards to the press and public, although she was a charming and witty hostess to those who knew her. She also produced some plays and non-fiction works. Her works include Gerald: A Portrait (1934), Jamaica Inn (1936), Frenchman's Creek (1941), Hungry Hill (1943), September Tide (1948), My Cousin Rachel (1951), The Apple Tree (1952), The Scapegoat (1957), The Glass-Blowers (1963), The Birds and Other Stories (1963), The Flight of the Falcon (1965), The House on the Strand (1969) and Enchanted Cornwall (1989).
