Du Maurier, Daphne - The Flight of the Falcon. The Book Club, not dated '60s? A young courier of Sunshine Tours conducts a choach-party of Anglo-American tourists from Genoa to Rome. One of the party, an English schoolmistress, draws his attention to a vagrant woman lying asleep in the doorway of the church near the via Veneto. The posture of the vagrant, supplicting and bowed, reminds him of something which he cannot name. The courier is caught up in the ensuing drama, so strangely connected with his own boyhood memories and with the Festival shortly to take place in the historic streets of Ruffano, when the students of the University are to enact scenes from the life of the mad Duke, known as The Falcon. The story moves swiftly to an exciting climax, in which the young courier plays a leading role. (Wrapper flap). 7½" x 5", 272pp, light blue cloth, hardback. Very good complete with very good minus wrapper.
