Don't Look Now by Daphne du Maurier

Book Description

An NYRB Original Daphne du Maurier wrote some of the most compelling and creepy novels of the twentieth century. In books like "Rebecca," "My Cousin Rachel," and "Jamaica Inn "she transformed the small dramas of everyday life love, grief, jealousy into the stuff of nightmares. Less known, though no less powerful, are her short stories, in which she gave free rein to her imagination in narratives of unflagging suspense. Patrick McGrath s revelatory new selection of du Maurier s stories shows her at her most chilling and most psychologically astute: a dead child reappears in the alleyways of Venice; routine eye surgery reveals the beast within to a meek housewife; nature revolts against man s abuse by turning a benign species into an annihilating force; a dalliance with a beautiful stranger offers something more dangerous than a broken heart. McGrath draws on the whole of du Maurier s long career and includes surprising discoveries together with famous stories like The Birds. "Don t Look Now" is a perfect introduction to a peerless storyteller."

Author Biography - Daphne du Maurier

DAPHNE DU MAURIER (1907-1989)was the daughter of the legendary actor-manager Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author of the vastly successful late-Victorian novel "Trilby "and cartoonist for the magazine "Punch." She grew up in London and Cornwall, where she would settle as an adult. Du Maurier published her first novel when she was twenty-three and would go on to write seventeen more, many of them best-sellers, including "My Cousin Rachel," "Jamaica Inn," and "Rebecca," one of the most popular novels of the twentieth century. In addition to her fiction, du Maurier wrote several family biographies, a biography of Branwell Bronte, a study of Cornwall, two plays, and a good deal of journalism. She was married to Tommy Boy Browning and was the mother of three children. PATRICK MCGRATH is the author of two story collections and seven novels, including "Port Mungo," "Dr. Haggard s Disease," "Spider," (which he also adapted for the screen), and most recently, "Trauma." "Martha Peake: A Novel of the Revolution" won Italy s Premio Flaiano Prize, and his 1996 novel, "Asylum," was short-listed for both the Whitbread and the Guardianfiction prizes. McGrath is the co-editor of a collection of short fiction, "The New Gothic." He lives in New York."
