A must to visit in Cornwall (and if you like Gin!) With Tarquins only being a half an hour trip from the house, we visited for their tasting and tour and it was incredible! It was interesting to learn more about Gin and the history behind such a young company.

 ‘It was Charles who called us the parasites .....”that’s what you are, the three of you.The whole bunch. You always have been and always will be. Nothing can change you...”
.
The Parasites by Daphne du Maurier
.

The opening lines of the novel immediately introduce us to ‘the parasites’ -  step-siblings, Maria, Niall and Celia, who are members of the Delaney family,- bohemian, theatrical,  and based on Du Maurier’s own family.  The accusation, made by Maria’s husband, the Hon Charles Wyndham, leads the siblings to reflect on his words, look back at their lives, and see how growing up in the shadow of their famous parents has affected them.
.
 
I read #TheParasites in preparation for @drlauravarnam’s Anniversary Talk at the recent @foweyfestival, and immediately fell in love with this character driven novel.Laura drew out the humour in the book, which I particularly enjoyed, and had not expected to find in a Du Maurier book! There are laugh out loud moments when the Delaneys are invited to stay with the Wyndham family, (the new in- laws),at their ancestral pile in the country, with disastrous results. And also when Maria is left alone with her baby for the first time one afternoon. The nurse has left everything prepared, but when the baby wails, and nothing can pacify her, Maria summons Niall and they drive around in the car, trying to come up with different ideas to stop the baby crying. They contemplate taking her to a hospital and leaving her in the children’s ward for the afternoon, they try accosting a woman to try and help, but they eventually stop at Woolworths and buy a comforter ....”those awful rubber things that common babies have in their mouths” and Niall proclaims that “How easy it would be if every time one felt on edge one could just go to Woolworths and buy a comforter. There must be something psychological about it. I think I shall get one for myself. It’s probably what I’ve wanted all my life.”
.

I am now looking forward to @drlauravarnam’s online discussion of The Parasites. Follow her feed for further details!

When I was in Fowey for the Festival I treated myself to the new @viragopress edition of Daphne du Maurier’s ‘I’ll Never Be Young Again’ with this fantastic cover by @edward_bettison. This is Daphne’s second novel and it has two parts, the second of which is set in Paris. I love the focus on the location in this cover design. I ran a reading group discussion on this book and as you’ll see from my handout, previous editions often focus on Hesta (usually with her orange beret!). She is a crucial character but the novel has a male narrator, Dick, and his experiences journeying with his new friend Jake in the mountains and fjords and then in Paris with Hesta are also focused on the experience of being young (and naive!) in a new place. One of Daphne’s major skills as a novelist is her evocation of landscape and place and her own experiences in Paris in the late 1920s are fundamental to this novel. I love this new design and am delighted to add it to my collection! #daphnedumaurier #illneverbeyoungagain #viragobooks #mydumaurierbook #readinggroup #foweyfest19 #foweyfestival #frontcover #bookstagram #beautifulbooks

I think it’s fair to say that we had an absolutely fantastic week at @foweyliterature this year! ⭐️ I met some wonderful people, both old friends and new, and met some lovely bookstagrammers and Facebook friends in real life for the first time which was fantastic! @elliegantgems @plp69 @_the_book_bug_ @pigeonpostbooks @heritagekate @lou_cornwall ⭐️ We started the festivities with the Festival lunch at @foweyharbourhotel with a brilliant talk from the novelist Diane Setterfield on the joys and importance of reading, which is what brings us all together at literary festivals! ⭐️ Then I was lucky enough to  interview Diane about her amazing new novel ‘Once Upon a River’, which is a masterpiece of story telling ⭐️ On the Du Maurier front, we have had a fantastic week! I ran three most enjoyable reading groups on ‘The Breaking Point’ short stories and on Daphne’s second novel ‘I’ll Never Be Young Again’. Thanks to all who came along and shared their views and debated the issues at hand! ⭐️ We were treated to a fascinating talk by @kateaspengren on Daphne as a playwright and I gave my anniversary talk on ‘The Parasites’ and ‘The House on the Strand’, focusing on Daphne’s craft and skill as a writer ⭐️ I ended the week with my medieval hat on, giving a talk on the fifteenth century mystic and writer Margery Kempe ⭐️ Finally, I introduced the Festival film, the 1944 adaptation of Frenchman’s Creek ⭐️ I’d like to thank everyone who came along and supported me this week (and supported all of the Festival events), I so enjoyed all our discussions ⭐️ A huge thank you to @brendadaly22 and her team for organising another fantastic week for us, and to the stewards and volunteers who help with all of the events ⭐️ I’m already looking forward to next year and plans are afoot for more wonderful Daphne events! ⭐️ Credit for this photo goes to my husband who did part of the Rebecca walk, while I was running my events! This is Polridmouth beach and the location of Rebecca’s beach house. #foweyfest19 #foweyfestival #fowey #daphnedumaurier #dumaurier #literaryfestival #bookstagram

So glad I managed to see the #rookwithabook while I was in #fowey this week! There’s #ferryside in the background, the Du Maurier family’s first home in Fowey, renovated from its use as part of the shipbuilding yard by Daphne’s mother, the actress Muriel Beaumont.

The Fowey Festival of Art and Literature is now in full swing. The town is famous for its antiquarian bookshops and of course it’s most famous resident Daphne du Maurier is the biggest draw.Pendower House played a small part in her story. She married Major Tommy Browning here at the nearby church of St Wyllow in July 1932 and knew Pendower House well, visiting the family occasionally. She wrote more than one novel at the Watch House just behind Pendower and I like to think that our little mysterious valley with it’s twisting lanes and ancient woodland close to the sea might have inspired her in her description of Manderley in Rebecca.and indeed this house is mentioned in her first novel “The Loving Spirit “ .#foweyfestival

We had a super talk yesterday from American playwright and lecturer Kate Aspengren on Daphne du Maurier’s plays. Daphne was an accomplished playwright, she adapted Rebecca for the stage in 1940 and wrote two further plays, The Years Between in 1945 and September Tide in 1949. Kate has done some fascinating work on the Rebecca adaptations, especially those performed in America, and she found some unusual revisions to one version, probably not by Daphne herself, but that cast Mrs Danvers in a different light. (Kate needed two aspiring actors to read from two of the adaptations... move over Kristin Scott Thomas, because my Mrs Danvers was quite something!! ) Thanks for a fantastic and thought provoking talk, Kate, and I’m already looking forward to a potential collaboration at next year’s festival! #foweyfestival #foweyfest19 #daphnedumaurier #rebecca #kateaspengren #playwright #drama

Happy Birthday Daphne du Maurier! (on #dumauriermonday no less!). I can't think of a more appropriate place to celebrate than in Daphne's beloved Fowey in Cornwall!

This morning I attended a fascinating book group at the Fowey Festival hosted by @drlauravarnam about Daphne's short story collection The Breaking Point. We tried to get our heads around the ambiguous & chilling stories! And it was wonderful to see Laura speak so passionately & engagingly about Daphne's writing.

Yesterday I explored 'du Maurier country' as I walked several miles in the sunshine from Polruan to Polkerris, along the South West Coast Path. Along the way I took in Readymoney Cove (where Daphne lived briefly during the Second World War) and Polridmouth. Daphne would go for afternoon walks along the coast, so I was truly walking in her footsteps. Skirting around the Menabilly estate I could hear the roar of the waves, which immediately brought to mind 'Rebecca'. In Polridmouth there is a cottage which apparently became the fictional boathouse in the novel (I'll pop a video of Polridmouth in my stories).

At the end of my walk I was pleased to find the bustling seaside village of Polkerris. And I was even more pleased to meet up with the lovely Kathryn @_the_book_bug_ and her husband for lunch in a fabulous restaurant by the beach! We then went to pay our respects to Menabilly. The house is hidden amongst woods, but at the gatehouse (where the gateposts are marked 'Strictly Private') you can see the long sweeping drive disappearing into the distance. This was as close as we could get, but it still gave us a thrill! So here I am at the gateway to Menabilly (looking a little disheveled after my walk!), clutching 'Rebecca's Tale' by Sally Beauman, and the magnificent 'Rebecca'.

First performance with Fable, busking at Fowey Festival.
The cold locked my fingers, stopped me playing, couldn't work out where I was in the music and I wanted to run away.

First performance with Fable, busking at Fowey Festival. The cold locked my fingers, stopped me playing, couldn't work out where I was in the music and I wanted to run away. But it was all ok in the end because Ali bought me chips with pulled pork on

I’ve been photographing some events for @foweyliterature this week and last night was #andykershaw! It was a fascinating interview and amazing to see so much energy still from someone he’s seen and done so much.

Fabulous display in the window of Bookends of Fowey, all set up for the Festival events including my own! I’ll have my medieval hat on this Friday when I’m giving a talk on Margery Kempe, the extraordinary 15th female mystic and writer (her book is in the bottom right corner here). And I’ll be making my way through lots of lovely Du Maurier this week in my reading groups and lectures. We’ll be talking about The Breaking Point (1959), The Parasites (1949), The House on the Strand (1969), and I’ll Never Be Young Again (1932). Looking forward to hearing everyone’s views! You can also see the striking new edition of Rule Britannia (1972) in this photo. #foweyfest19 #foweyfestival #daphnedumaurier #margerykempe #bookendsoffowey

Well this morning was so wonderful I didn’t get chance to take any photos!! But what a delight to interview the brilliant Diane Setterfield. She was absolutely spell binding and the audience loved it. I have learned so much from having the pleasure and privilege of working with her and talking with her over the last few months, it’s difficult to sum it all up! But I am sure Diane will be back to Fowey Festival very soon. She is very much a part of the Festival family now and I’m pleased to call her a friend #dianesetterfield #onceuponariver #foweyfest19 #foweyfestival #fowey #cornwall #bookstagram

Super proud of Herbie. He won first place in the infants poetry category @foweyliterature Not only did he win, but he had the courage to stand up and read his poem to a church packed full of people. Which neither me or his dad would have done at 6 years old 🤩🥇

We are all packed and ready for the drive down to Cornwall tomorrow where we will be embracing all things #dumaurier at the Fowey Literature Festival, including a highly anticipated talk by #dumaurierexpert @drlauravarnam! We are also looking forward to meeting up with #dumaurierfan @pigeonpostbooks and hearing about the fun she has been having in Fowey. .

I picked up @viragopress’ latest edition of Du Maurier’s #rulebritannia after reading a review of it by critic @scholeslucy in @thetimes on 20th April ..... you can read a copy of it on her feed. .
🇬🇧
The novel, written in 1972, imagines a future UK on the brink of bankruptcy after joining, then leaving,  the European Common Market ..... eerily paralleling Brexit! .
🇬🇧
Oh, and the lovely @amyandbooks recently shared her beautiful vintage first edition of Rule Britannia, so do pop over to her feed to have a peep!

What a fabulous day we’ve had! The brilliant novelist Diane Setterfield was the guest speaker at the opening lunch at Fowey Festival. Here we are together in the Fowey Harbour Hotel and afterwards at the wonderful bookshop Bookends of Fowey (spot The Thirteenth Tale on the book stand!) Diane talked beautifully about the pleasures of books and reading, which is what brings us all together here at the Festival and all of us here on #bookstagram too! It was a wonderful celebration of the power of stories to entertain, enchant, distract, and delight, and how powerful they are in helping us to make sense of the world around us. I cannot wait for tomorrow morning when Diane and I will be in conversation about her new novel, ‘Once Upon A River’. I’m sure Diane will be as spell binding as she was today! #foweyfest19 #foweyfestival #dianesetterfield #onceuponariver #writersofinstagram #books #bookstagram

It’s Saturday, the sun is shining, Fowey Festival of Arts & Literature is under way and it’s the first day of the fabulous Fowey Art Trail. I love the art trail, there are so many talented artists in this tiny town. Pick up a trail map from us or download one from the Festival website. Don’t forget the Secret Gardens trail too, perfect for the nosey gardener (yes Mum, I am looking at you...)
