“Du Maurier is in a class by herself.”—New York TimesPerhaps best known for her immortal gothic masterwork Rebecca—the basis for the Academy Award-winning motion picture directed by Alfred Hitchcock—Daphne de Maurier began her illustrious writing career penning short stories. In The Doll, thirteen of du Maurier’s early shorter fictional works have been collected—each story written before the author’s twenty-third birthday and some in print for the first time since the 1930s.

This breathtaking collection of short fiction belongs on the bookshelf of every Daphne du Maurier fan.
