Lost Daphne du Maurier stories discovered

Bookseller unearths five early Daphne du Maurier tales including a risqué short story entitled 'The Doll'

A bookseller's dedicated attempts to root out the early work of Daphne du Maurier have resulted in the recovery of five lost tales by the enduringly popular author of Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. Most startling among them is "The Doll", published in 1928 when Du Maurier was barely into her 20s – a macabre short story about a man who discovers that the girl he's smitten with is besotted with a mechanical sex doll.
