Short biography
Angela du Maurier was the eldest of three du Maurier sisters. In her obituary, The Independent said that though she might have seemed to have lived in the shadow of her famous sister Daphne, such was her strength of character that nobody in the family ever thought so. She was extremely sociable, adoring the endless parties her parents gave at their home in Hampstead, London, and visiting the dressing rooms of the theatrical stars who were her father's friends. She herself originally wanted to become an actor and was thrilled when Uncle Jim (J.M. Barrie) agreed one year that she could play Wendy Darling in his play Peter Pan. But she soon gave up acting aspirations and decided, as did Daphne, that she wanted to write, like their grandfather George du Maurier. She published 11 books, including two volumes of autobiography.
