The Snow Ball

Brigid Brophy

A sparkling, intelligent novel, first published in 1964 and just re-issued by Faber & Faber. It is set over the course of a decadent fancy dress party on a snowy New Year’s Eve, with all the guests in 18th C finery. The unfolding comedy of manners is a tribute to BB’s love of opera, and her heroine’s great obsessions: ‘Mozart, sex and death’.
