Product Description

What do you do when the person you love has to change? 

David Ebershoff's  debut novel is loosly based on the true story of the first man to undergo a sex-change operation and the woman who loves him. Set against the glitz and decadence of 1920s Copenhagen, Paris and Dresden, Einar Wegener and his American wife Greta Waud have been married for six years. They are both painters, and live a life of bohemian languor in Copenhagen until one day their marriage faces the most challenging test possible. 

This award-winning novel tells the remarkable story of Einar and the woman he becomes, Lili Elbe, and Greta, a woman torn between loyalty to her marriage and her own ambitions and desires.A childhood friend of Einar, art-dealer Hans Axgil, shows up and starts a complex love triangle with the couple. Now adapted into a film stars Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne as Lili, and is directed by Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (Les Miserables).
