Memory Like Scent: A Closer Look at Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier: Margaret Norwich

"Once more we too may dream of returning to Manderley!  The macabre and timeless atmosphere of this thriller, (or is it a romance?) seen through the eyes of a nameless husband and his charismatic first wife, has captured the imagination of readers since it was published in 1938. The author has suggested it is a study in jealousy; it's certainly a great read and there's much to discuss."
