Today The Doll, a volume of short stories by Daphne du Maurier, is published in the Virago Modern Classics. A haunting collection, most of the stories were written very early in du Maurier's career - when she was in her early twenties – and have not been in print for many years.
Listen to Polly Samson, the introducer of this collection, and Helen Taylor, author of The Daphne du Maurier Companion, discussing the stories on Woman's Hour.
To read 'The Doll', which was written when du Maurier was only twenty, here it is in the Guardian, or if you'd prefer to kick back and relax, close your eyes and listen to it on Radio 4.
Two other stories from the collection have been read on Radio 4, 'East Wind' and 'The Happy Valley'.
