A bookseller's dedicated attempts to root out the early works of Daphne du Maurier have resulted in the recovery of five lost tales by the author of Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. They will be published in May.
The most anticipated of the stories is "The Doll", written in 1928 when du Maurier was barely 20, about a man who discovers that the girl he's smitten with is besotted with a mechanical sex doll.
Bookseller and du Maurier devotee Ann Willmore says she has been looking for this particular story for years after reading about it in du Maurier's memoir. She found it, by chance, in a 1937 collection of stories rejected by magazines and publishers called The Editor Regrets.
