Description:

First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very light use; light wear to extremities; mild rubbing to sheen of wrapper covers; slight spine lean, though binding remains perfectly secure; text clean. Pages have tanned with age. Remains close to 'As New'. 12mo. 351pp. Penguin Modern Classics Series. Mass Market Paperback. Rosamond Lehmann's "The Weather in the Streets" is a sequel to her earlier book, "Invitation to the Waltz". Here, Olivia, who in the prevoius book was a nervous debutante, is now older, though perhaps not much wiser. Separated from her husband, she falls in love with the married brother of an old friend and embarks upon a tempestuous affair. Compared to its predecessor, "The Weather in the Streets" is darker, but more powerful and more complex. Olivia's inner monologues are brilliantly done, and Lehmann even slips into the first person for one section of the book, though the change is so unobtrusive that I almost didn't notice it. Of all of the writers I've read, Lehmann is one of the best at getting into her character's thoughts and showing us their experiences and emotions honestly and directly. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Taking up where AN INVITATION TO THE WALTZ left off, THE WEATHER IN THE STREETS shows us Olivia Curtis ten years older, a failed marriage behind her, thinner, sadder, and apprently not much wiser. A chance encounter on a train with a man who enchanted her as a teenager leads to a forbidden love affair and a new world of secret meetings, brief phone calls and snatched liaisons in anonymous hotel rooms.

Years ahead of its time when first published, this subtle and powerful novel shocked even the most stalwart Lehmann fans with its searing honesty and passionate portrayal of clandestine love.

About the Author: Rosamond Lehmann (1901-1990) was born in Buckinghamshire and educated privately before going to Girton College, Cambridge, as a scholar. She was made a CBE in 1982 and remains one of the most distinguished writers of the 20th century.
