Daphne du Maurier and her Sisters

The Hidden Lives of Piffy, Bird and Bing

by Jane Dunn

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 24/02/2014

  $30.25
The Du Mauriers - three beautiful, successful and rebellious sisters, whose lives were bound in a family drama that inspired Angela and Daphne's best novels. Much has been written about Daphne but here the hidden lives of the sisters are revealed in a riveting group biography.

The middle sister in a celebrated artistic dynasty, Daphne du Maurier is one of the master storytellers of our time, author of 'Rebecca', 'Jamaica Inn' and 'My Cousin Rachel'. Her success and fame were enhanced by films of her novels and horrifying short stories, 'Don't Look Now' and the unforgettable 'The Birds' among them. But this fame overshadowed her sisters Angela and Jeanne, a writer and an artist of talent, living quiet lives even more unconventional than Daphne's own.

In this group biography they are considered side by side, as they were in life, three sisters brought up in the hothouse of a theatrical family with a peculiar and powerful father. This family dynamic reveals the hidden lives of Piffy, Bird & Bing, full of social non-conformity, creative energy and compulsive make-believe, their lives as psychologically complex as a Daphne du Maurier plotline.
