Quotable Daphne du Maurier

Quote for the week is from the incomparable Daphne du Maurier, author of one of the best opening lines in a book. "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderly again." Ah, Rebecca, what a book. I'm surprised that hasn't been remade starring Gwyneth Paltrow and perhaps Daniel Craig.

Anyway, Ms. du Maurier said: "Writers should be read, but neither seen nor heard."

Based on some things I've seen and heard when a lot of writers get together, there's a lot of wisdom in that.
