  1. lovely, but these all seem to be romances or crime thrillers. Is there a serious work of fiction that you know of that’s largely set in Cornwall? cheers.


      1. I vaguely remember Rebecca the movie with Olivier: it seemed a little melodramatic to me at the time. What I find more interesting is that she apparently wrote it while in Alexandria Egypt; there is also the titillating “Venetian” subtheme to her own life, which provides lurid fascination to many of her work, still. I will try to find Margaret Forster’s bio at the library (for the Alexandria bit) and also check out the link you provided. Thanks!
