The Doll: Short Stories, Paperback

The Doll: Short Stories Paperback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series



'I want to know if men realise when they are insane.

Sometimes I think that my brain cannot hold together, it is filled with too much horror - too much despair ...I cannot sleep, I cannot close my eyes without seeing his damned face.

If only it had been a dream.' In 'The Doll', a waterlogged notebook is washed ashore.

Its pages tell a dark story of obsession and jealousy.

But the fate of its narrator is a mystery. Most of the stories in this haunting collection were written early in Daphne du Maurier's career - when she was still in her early twenties - yet they display her mastery of atmosphere, tension and intrigue and reveal a cynicism far beyond her years.
