Discussing Daphne du Maurier Across The Miles

Last year, I was delighted to be invited to join my dear friend Becky on her podcast Tea, Toast and Trivia to chat about how to age joyfully and the notion of excellence. I was honoured when Becky asked me to join her once again for another conversation, this time focusing on our shared love of Daphne du Maurier’s writing.

Following my recent review of Jamaica Inn, we realised that we both wanted to read The House on the Strand. In fact, we ended up listening to the same audiobook. And what a great story it is. We talk about why we enjoyed it, and muse on what this, her penultimate novel, might indicate about du Maurier’s feelings as she approaches the end of her writing career.

I hope you enjoy listening to the podcast as much as I enjoyed participating! 🙂

  1. Now you have given me a serious push to get my own thoughts out before I enjoy listening to yours, Liz. Glad to hear that you enjoyed it I am definitely in the minority in not being keen on this one!

  2. I really enjoyed Rebecca’s podcast and her conversation with you. With our relatives going back as far as the 1500s in Cornwall, I realise I must start reading du Maurier very soon. Please pass on my comment to Rebecca.

    1. Hello Joan – I knew you would like this conversation. But what I didn’t know was that you had relatives going back as far as the 1500’s in Cornwall. Oh my goodness – How exciting.
