ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE BRITISH WRITERS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

'Full of her sensibility, her funniness, her own peculiar acumen' ELIZABETH JANE HOWARD


'Lehmann legitimised a type of writing that took on deep personal themes' ENGLISH PEN

'Combines something of the earthiness of Colette with the imaginative insight of Virginia Woolf' CYRIL CONNOLLY

Rosamond Lehmann, one of the most distinguished British writers of this century, published eight acclaimed works of fiction. Her only autobiographical work, The Swan in the Evening, recreated first the child she was and the experiences that made her the woman she became, moving on to tell the story of her beloved daughter Sally and the tragedy of her early death at the age of twenty-four.

Then, tentatively and persuasively, Rosamond Lehmann relates the totally unexpected, overwhelming and scrupulously recorded psychic and mystical experiences she underwent following that terrible loss. The meaning of such events, their messages of hope and comfort to others she then, through a letter to her grandaughter, passes to us.
