The scandalous 1960s cult classic with a foreword by Eley Williams: when Anna is kissed by a masked figure at a New Year’s Eve masquerade ball, a heady dance of seduction begins. 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.
