Hide Profile

Rosamond Lehmann was an author, editor, and translator, probably most widely known as a novelist. Born in England to a well-to-do Edwardian family, she attended Cambridge and found success with her first novel, the semiautobiographical Dusty Answer. Her work had a particularly feminine quality, featuring lyrical prose and psychological insight, but slightly repetitive plots; she was often compared with Virginia Woolf as a stylist with a strongly feminine perspective. She also served as vice-president of the spiritualist College of Psychic Studies and as co-director of her brother's publishing firm, John Lehmann Limited.
