Neverland

Author: 
Piers Dudgeon
You will never look at Peter Pan the same way again after reading this book. Neverland describes in chilling detail the twisted relationships between Peter Pan's author, J.M. Barrie, Daphne Du Maurier (author of Rebecca) and her grandfather, George Du Maurier, who was the creator of "Svengali". Their lives were filled with madness, suicide attempts and disturbing emotional abuse. According to the evidence in this book, Barrie essentially stole the "lost boys" from their real family by forging a will. He may have even had a hand in the death of his own brother. Neverland is great reading for anyone interested in these authors or anyone looking for a good, early-twentieth century, soap-opera.
