Lawrence observed in 1921, Barrie has a fatal touch for those he loves.

They die. The five nervous breakdowns, two suicides, one attempted suicide and numerous deaths that are associated with him blacken the reputation of a man adored by generations of children.However, what is less well known is that Barries malign influence grew out of his infatuation with the du Maurier family, particularly with the hypnotist, George du Maurier, creator of Svengali- with Georges daughter and grandsons (models for the Darlings in Peter Pan)- and with his enigmatic granddaughter, Daphne du Maurier, author of Rebecca and Barries final victim, whose life and work can never again be considered without reference to Unlce Jim.
