ROSAMOND LEHMANN The British writer who was awarded a CBE in 1982 penned this letter and her signature Autograph Letter Signed: "R". 5½x7. Two pages. Features her letterhead from The Manor House in Abingdon, Berkshire. Circa 1950. In Part: "I do want to know about your personal life. I had written letters from Miss Mauford while I was in Ireland. She wanted to know what I could for Robin these holidays". Rosamond Lehmann (1907-1989) was an English novelist whose first book, Dusty Answer (1927), was a best seller, controversial at the time for its open portrayal of gay and lesbian relationships at Cambridge, her alma mater. In all, she wrote seven novels and a short story collection, translated two French works into English, and authored some nonfiction, including an autobiography. Her only play, No More Music, opened in 1939. Her novels The Weather in the Streets (1936) and The Echoing Grove (1953) were made into movies, the latter re-titled Heart of Me (2002). Lehmann was a member of the "Bloomsbury set," which included literature luminaries such as Virginia Woolf and Lytton Strachey. Two movies, titled The Weather in the Streets (1983) and The Heart of Me (2002), were produced from her works. She was honored with a CBE in 1982. Creasing throughout. Light smudging and staining. Otherwise, fine condition.
