The Swan in the Evening - Fragments of an Inner Life

£10.99

Product description

Originally published in 1967, this is the second impression published in 1968 by Collins

Rosamond Lehmann, one of the most distinguished British writers of the 20th 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.

In good condition. No dust jacket, some marks on board covers. Former owners book plate stuck on end papers. There are a few pen marks in the margins highlighting passages.
