Alternative Title: Sandwiches of Unknown Origins.
Grab your teabags and butter your crumpets, Claire and Alex go in on Daphne Du Maurier's classic 1938 novel, Rebecca! It's spooky! It's wordy! It's got the most mentions of scones per page in a single text!
Among the topics up for debate are clumsy heroines, justifiable homicides, men named Giles, and the incest taboo (again, for some reason).  Alex dubs the nameless narrator 'Elsa' for convenience-TAKE THAT PLOT DEVICE! Claire doesn't let Alex give spoilers for her own novel, 'Begin Again, Again' which you'd think would be the exception to the spoiler rule, but apparently isn't.
If you like people cocking up British accents, you've come to the right place!!!
