Hungry Hill by Dame Daphne du Maurier, Lady Browning
When two brothers fall in love with the same woman, the affair means disaster both to the family as well as th the family empire. This early Daphne du Maurier novel centers on the fortunes and fates of five generations of an Anglo-Irish family who are bound to their copper mine on Hungry Hill. Beginning with the first stubborn patriarch, there are the forthright first-born son; the petulant, lazy second-born; and so on. This is a marvelous tale--on a par with du Maurier's more famous books, such as REBECCA and JAMAICA INN.
This hardcover classic is in fair to good condition. The pages, while some yellowing on the edges, are very strong, thick and have no tears. 1 title page is starting to come away from the binding. Just 1 ! There are library stamps, a previous owners address label on the inside jacket which is secured to the board (adhesive from the jacket). This could be taken off and would reveal the very clean green cover (the green cover board does have some fraying on the edges). A few penccil marks on the inside back board.
344 pages. Triangle Books. Publisher: Blakiston Co

About Dame Daphne du Maurier, Lady Browning
was an English author and playwright. Many of her works have been adapted into films, including the novels Rebecca, which won the Best Picture Oscar in 1941, Jamaica Inn, and her short stories The Birds and Don't Look Now. The first three were directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Her elder sister was Angela du Maurier, also a writer.
Daphne du Maurier was born in London (although she spent most of her life in her beloved Cornwall), the second of three daughters of the prominent actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and actress Muriel Beaumont (maternal niece of William Comyns Beaumont).[1] Her grandfather was the author and Punch cartoonist George du Maurier, who created the character of Svengali in the novel Trilby. These connections helped her in establishing her literary career; du Maurier published some of her very early work in his Bystander magazine, and her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published in 1931. Du Maurier was also the cousin of the Llewelyn Davies boys, who served as J.M. Barrie's inspiration for the characters in the play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. As a young child she was introduced to many of the brightest stars of the theatre thanks to the celebrity of her father; notably, on meeting Tallulah Bankhead she was quoted as saying that the actress was the most beautiful creature she had ever seen.

She married Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick "Boy" Browning and had two daughters and a son (Tessa, Flavia and Christian). Biographers have noted that the marriage was at times somewhat chilly and have also established that du Maurier could be aloof and distant to her children, especially the girls, when immersed in her writing.[2] "Boy" died in 1965 and soon after Daphne moved to Kilmarth, near Par, which became the setting for The House on the Strand.
