Daphne Du Maurier Challenge

The Daphne Du Maurier Challenge challenge is being run by Chris at Book-a-Rama.  It will run from May 13, 2010- April 19, 2011. Why those dates? Daphne Du Maurier was born May 13, 1907 and died April 19, 1989.

There are several categories and you can either focus on one form or mix them up. I’m going to read novels and short stories by Daphne Du Maurier. I’m aiming to read these from my own collection:

  • I’ll Never Be Young Again
  • Julius
  • My Cousin Rachel
  • The Parasites
  • The Rendezvous and Other Stories

and one from the library – The Breaking Point (short stories).

I’d also like to read Justine Picardie’s biographical novel, Daphne, and Flavia Leng’s Daphne du Maurier : A Daughter’s Memoir.
