  1. Hey Steph, how are you?

    I recently visited ‘Ferryside’, Daphne Du Maurier’s house in the sleepy little village of Bodinnick-by-Fowey in Cornwall. It is where she wrote this book. If you’ve never been to Fowey – infamous for privateers and swashbuckling pirates! – or visited the Du Maurier house, I’d thoroughly recommend it.

    Whilst there, I came across a large metal sculpture called, ‘Rook with a Book’ (2018) that stands at the harbours edge within sight of Maurier’s house. It is a celebration of her work but specifically references her short-story, “The Birds” – a horror story first published in 1952 and later appropriated by Alfred Hitchcock for his 1963 film, The Birds. When I visited the statue it was surrounded by flocks of gabbling sea-gulls and cawing crows: all very reminiscent of the film!

    The statue is due to go up for public auction in 2020, so be quick if you wish to see it!

    Ciao for now,
