This is one for the vaults. & "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again . . . " The author's most famous book, a literary classic, never out of print, and the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock's Oscar-winning film. " If Daphne du Maurier had written only Rebecca, she would still be one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. Few writers have created more magical and mysterious places than Jamaica Inn and Manderley, buildings invested with a rich character that gives them a memorable life of their own." (goodreads) Until recently, Rebecca "was mostly viewed as an archetypal piece of romantic fiction, a twentieth-century rewriting of Jane Eyre in which a poor young woman falls in love with a moody, upper-class man, but is tyrannised by the mysteries of his country house. . . . [Du Maurier] intended it as a study in jealousy", [and] was trying to explore the relationship between a man who is powerful and a woman who is dependent. In recent years, Rebecca has increasingly been read as a key example of Female Gothic, and as a text that explores both the painful construction of feminine identity, and the instability of patriarchal power and social class."

        To Beg I am Ashamed

      London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd, 1938 - RARE. BANNED IN LONDON. When originally published its reception was hostile and it was considered "disgusting and obscene. "The Public Morality Council decided that it should be banned and caused the police to "lean on" the publisher so that the book was withdrawn. It was then published in Paris by Jack Kahane at his Obelisk Press, and many times since. Authorship has been attributed to many, including Graham Greene, Jack Kahane and Cecil Barr, but the British Museum's catalogue entry attributes it to Mathews with the "discreet assistance of Graham Greene." The attribution seems now to be discounted, and the book is not considered part of the canon, but it is still of great interest not only for historic Greene associations, but for the fact that it is an important addition to the great body of controversial literature dealing with prostitution, women's sexual and economic liberation. and official hypocrisy (GREENE, GRAHAM?)

Son style, serein, d'une matière fournie, perfectionniste est particulièrement caractéristique." (Georges Lepape, par Jacques Crépineau, 1978). Oeuvre originale
