'Superb ... Sheer artistic insolence.' - Iris Murdoch
'Brilliantly seductive...A witty, sexy, sophisticated treat.' - Sarah Waters
London, New Year's Eve. Snow falls on a Georgian mansion, vibrating with the festivities of an eighteenth-century themed masquerade ball within. Middle-aged divorcee Anna stands alone, mourning her youth - until the clock chimes midnight and a mysterious masked figure kisses her on the mouth. Thus begins a heady dance of seduction charged by other clandestine romances swirling around them, whipping the ball into an erotic frenzy of operatic proportions - until the night climaxes, revealing unease beneath the glitter...
A scandalous sensation in 1964, Brigid Brophy's The Snow Ball is a dazzling festive classic ripe to seduce a new generation of readers.
'A magical capering beast by a comet in her day.' - Terry Castle
