Finding the world


He was like someone sleeping who woke suddenly and found the world...all the beauty of it and the sadness too...the hunger and the thirst...everything he had never thought about or known was there before him, and magnified themselves into one person, who by chance or fate, call it what you will, happened to be me.


Daphne du Maurier My Cousin Rachel

Artist/Marc Chagall

I love this excerpt; I've never read du Maurier, but I am fascinated. I've been working on a novel that approaches this self-realization. What else has she written?
