Man recalled daughter featuring in Vogue (5)


I believe the answer is:


'man' is the definition.

'recalled daughter featuring in vogue' is the wordplay.
'recalled' shows that the letters should be reversed in order (to recall can mean to bring something back).
'daughter' becomes 'd' (genealogical abbreviation).
'featuring in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'vogue' becomes 'rage' (rage is a kind of vogue).
'd' inserted within 'rage' is 'ragde'.
'ragde' backwards is 'EDGAR'.

(Other definitions for edgar that I've seen before include "- Wallace, Eng. thriller writer" , "character in King Lear" , "- Rice Burroughs, US novelist" , "Grade (anag)" , "Earl's son" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
