Portrait
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. 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.Many of du Maurier's bestselling novels and short stories were adapted into award-winning films, including Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now. In 1969 du Maurier was awarded a DBE. She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books.

All the way through, I was wondering how the mansion Manderley would look like if it was real. A young woman marries an older gentleman, Maxim de Winter. Still, everyone is thinking about his late first wife Rebecca. So the new Mrs de Winter feels unloved and always compared to the first wife. Even the servant Mrs Danvers doesn't make life much easier as she was Rebecca's closest friend. After some time though, the young lady finds out about a dark secret, connected to Maxim and whole Manderley. But will their love overcome all the troubles? Good short story, but I guess I rather prefer the original book for it is longer and therefore much more detailed.

Perfekte Verbindung vom Angenehmen mit dem Nützlichen

"Rebecca" gehörte schon als Teenager zu meinen Lieblingsbüchern. Als ich kürzlich meine Sprachkenntnisse aufpolieren wollte, fiel mir diese etwas vereinfachte englische Ausgabe samt CDs in die Hände. Toll! Der Text ist sinnvoll gekürzt und durch die CDs hat man die Sprache schnell verinnerlicht.
