KIRKUS REVIEW

A delightful biography of Gerald du Maurier, the actor, by his daughter. It begins, naturally, with the father, George du Maurier, author of Trilby and Peter Ibbetson, and it builds the character of the son, always falling short of attainment, seeking and not finding, restless, contradictory, brilliant without the ability to see things through, and yet charming, lovable, gifted. An enthralling picture of family life, affectionate, candid; and the portrait is painted in honesty and devotion to Gerald, the man. Good reading.
