ROSAMOND LEHMANN This short letter was written and signed by the British author who published the scandalous novel Dusty Answer Autograph Letter Signed: "R". 3½x5½. In Part: "I am so terribly distressed about Kenneth. Please do send us a line when you have time. I can't telephone as you know. He is [in] the worst pain in the world I believe; Peggy had it once and had to be operated". 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. She was honored with a CBE in 1982. Deep crease across center. Otherwise, fine condition.
