The Shutter of Snow - Emily Holmes Coleman

Well here is something interesting! A cool Faber Editions copy of this 'long hailed as a triumph' autobiographical novel from Holmes Coleman. First published in 1933 by this American expat writer who lived and breathed Lost Generation Paris. It is a story about post-partum psychosis, sometimes compared to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest but if its picked up by Faber, then you know there's more to it ... Nice copy found in Margate, UK.
