Echoes From the Macabre: Selected Stories
Echoes From the Macabre Selected Stories Author:Daphne Du Maurier This is a very nice, brand new condition book. Cover is dark green with gold border. There is no lettering on cover, just on spine. No dust jacket.
This book contains nine strange tales some of which are also found in "The Apple Tree," "Kiss Me Again, Stranger," and "Don't Look Now." Included in this book are Don't Look Now, The Apple Tree, The Blue Lenses, The Birds, The Alibi, and Not After Midnight. All center closely around one central character and lead to a bizarre culmination. Well, except for The Birds in which she leaves the reader dangling. This one, incidentally, was the basis for the Hitchcock film. All involve a simple plot, although it sometimes seems that she protracts it to the extreme. At any rate the endings are worth the effort.
