Publisher Description

A happily married woman commits suicide for no apparent reason, a young man tries to break some important news to the beautiful girl he had hoped to marry, a con girl plays the same bold game too often, and a novelist embarks on a romantic adventure but is woefully disappointed. In all these stories, glimpses into personal lives are vividly portrayed, but they are all wonderfully evocative and written with warmth.

    " Didn't finish. The stories I read were elegantly written but seemed outdated rather than just old-fashioned. "

    " The matinee is over, but who is the visitor waiting at the stage door? Daphne Du Maurier's short story, read by Michael Drew. "

About the Author

Daphne du Maurier (1907–1989) was born in London, the daughter of the actor Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of the author and artist George du Maurier. She has been called one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. She began writing in 1928, and many of her bestselling novels were set in Cornwall, where she lived for most of her life. Besides novels, du Maurier wrote plays, biographies, and several collections of short fiction. Among her more famous works are The Scapegoat, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, and the short story “The Birds,” all of which were subsequently made into films, the latter three directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
