The Swan in the Evening

(1967)
Fragments of an Inner Life
A non fiction book by

 
 
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 24. 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.
