The Doll: The Lost Short Stories
by Daphne du Maurier

About the Book:
Daphne du Maurier's most famous works include the novel Rebecca and the short story "The Birds," and today Cemetery Dance Publications is pleased to announce a collection of 13 impressive stories written by Daphne du Maurier before she was 23 years old.

This incredible new volume is comprised of eight stories that were published in a small UK volume called Early Stories, which is long out of print, and five stories that were published in periodicals during the early 1930s.

These long lost stories explore the evolution of the images, themes, and concerns that informed du Maurier's later work. Each story in the collection highlights du Maurier's deep understanding of human nature.

This Cemetery Dance Publications special "trade" edition will be limited to a one-time printing and there will be no second printings!

Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989) has been called one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. Among her more famous works are Jamaica Inn, The Scapegoat, Rebecca, and the short story "The Birds," all of which were subsequently made into films, the latter two directed by Alfred Hitchcock. She lived for many years in Cornwall, England, and in 1969 became Dame Daphne du Maurier.
