Myself When Young

by Daphne Du Maurier

Little, Brown And Company | April 1, 2004 | Trade Paperback |

Not yet rated | write a review
Both in her novels and her memoirs, Daphne du Maurier revealed an ardent desire to explore her family''s history. In "Myself When Young," based on diaries she kept between 1920 and 1932, du Maurier probes her own past, beginning with her earliest memories and encompassing the publication of her first book and her marriage. Often painfully honest, she recounts her difficult relationship with her father, her education in Paris, her early love affairs, her antipathy towards London life, and her desperate ambition to succeed as a writer. The resulting self-portrait is of a complex, utterly captivating young woman.
