Du Maurier appeared on the radio 4 desert island disks in 1977, which is now available on the BBC website to listen to and to download. It is wonderful – and one of the rare public appearances which du Maurier made, which makes it even more invaluable!
Just a quick post to say that the du Maurier festival is on now! I wish I could be there and despite my best attempts to promise myself I would be there, I am not… unfortunately. But I hope it goes well, and those that are there, enjoy. If you haven’t heard of it, do look it up, it looks to be a wonderful couple of weeks as ever.
I would like to make a huge apology for abandoning this blog. I will try to keep it more updated in the future. I handed in my disseration last week (was it only last week?!). Gosh, it seems a while ago anyway! It was great to get it finished and handed in, although I really enjoyed spending so much time working on du Maurier over the last few months. It was great fun – and I still love du Maurier and her work, so that’s got to be a good thing! It was fascinating and so much fun, it was so good tgo be able to work on something I loved so much. After all, I had been wanting to write about du Maurier and her work since I was about seventeen, so I’m glad that worked out alright!
I am going to try and keep this more updated now! Let’s hope that happens! 🙂
