FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF REBECCA

'A remarkable book . . . brilliant comic writing' THE TIMES

'An enthralling picture of family life . . . devotion to Gerald, the man' KIRKUS REVIEWS

'Du Maurier has no equal' DAILY TELEGRAPH

Sir Gerald du Maurier was the most celebrated actor-manager of his day, knighted for his services to the theatre in 1922. He was also a father to one of the most enduring writers of the twentieth century.

Published within six months of her father's death, this frank biography was considered shocking by many of his admirers, but it was a huge success, winning Daphne du Maurier critical acclaim and launching her career.

In Gerald: A Portrait, Daphne du Maurier captures the spirit and charm of the charismatic actor who played the original Captain Hook. It amusingly recalls his eccentricities, sense of humour and sensitively portrays the darker side of his nature and bouts of depression.
