About the Author
Du Maurier's happy childhood at Passy, France, is recalled in Peter Ibbetson (1891), and his full-blooded enjoyment of student life in the Latin Quarter of Paris is reflected in Trilby (1894). In The Martian (1897) there is a poignant episode based on his own tragic experience of losing the sight of his left eye.
