Lehmann wrote her last book, Eighteen Song Cycles, in 1972. You may read the published as well as the unpublished (and Lehmann-candid) introduction. The page called “misc” writings is interesting to scroll through. You can find Lehmann poetry, articles on Toscanini, her feelings about her own recordings and more.
