Vanished With The Rose – Laura (Possibly by Eileen Hunter)

Minimum Donation €12.00

Here is a new writer of performance and promise. Laura, delightful, sympathetic, smiling, self-critical, is observed reaching the age of twenty-one between two world wars. The acute observation and lively, sometimes poetic, style are reinforced with a freshness and frequently a gaiety and humour absent only too often from contemporary writing. The unconscious comedy or pathos of the lives of the people around Laura and her own changing and developing reactions and emotions are realized in a manner that stamps the author as a subtle new talent

Bound in dark pink cloth with black and white titling on spine. Some bleaching to spine and the top of the back and front boards. Minor bumping to corners. A little tanning to edges. The background – a middle-class English family, materially comfortable, emotionally the exact opposite, and Laura’s at times comic endeavours to free herself not only from these latter-day Forsytes but from the snares of her own temperament are drawn by an already astonishingly assured hand. Connoisseurs are going to enjoy Vanished with the Rose, and if they should be curious as to the writer’s pseudonym, so is her publisher. Published by Hutchinson 1964. Weight 385g
