Description
In his revelatory Neverland, Piers Dudgeon tells the tragic story of J. M. Barrie and the Du Maurier family. Driven by a need to fill the vacuum left by sexual impotence, Barrie sought out George du Maurier, Daphne du Maurier's grandfather (author of the famed Trilby), who specialized in hypnosis. Barrie's fascination and obsession with the Du Maurier family is a shocking study of greed and psychological abuse, as we observe Barrie as he applies these lessons in mind control to captivate George's daughter Sylvia, his son Gerald, as well as their children--who became the inspiration for the Darling family in Barrie's immortal Peter Pan.Barrie later altered Sylvia's will after her death so that he could become the boys' legal guardian, while pushing several members of the family to nervous breakdown and suicide. Barrie's compulsion to dominate was so apparent to those around him that D. H. Lawrence once wrote: J. M Barrie has a fatal touch for those he loves. They die.
