Product description

Product Description

Starring Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne and directed by Academy Award-winner Tom Hooper, this major motion picture portrays an unforgettable celebration of love.

It starts with a question, a simple favour asked by a wife of her husband, setting off a transformation neither can anticipate.

Einar Wegener and his American wife Greta Waud have been married for six years, but are yet to have a child. Both painters, they live a life of bohemian languor in Copenhagen until one day their lives are irreversibly altered. The Danish Girl eloquently shows the intimacy that defines a marriage and the nearly forgotten story of the love between a man who discovers that he is, in fact, a woman, and his wife who would sacrifice anything for him.

Set against the glitz and decadence of 1920s Copenhagen, Paris and Dresden, and inspired by a true story, The Danish Girl is about one of the most passionate and unusual marriages of the twentieth century.

'a story of true love, suffering and sacrifice' - Sunday Telegraph

Fictionalized account of the life of Danish artist Einar Wegener who was one of the first to undergo gender-reassignment surgery in 1930 Germany. Supported by his painter wife Greta, for whom - in his alter-ego of Lili Elbe - he was a frequent model, this is a compulsive and desperately sad read. It movingly portrays the sufferings entailed by surgery in its infancy and a marriage struggling to survive when each has their own dreams - Lili longs for a husband and her own child, while Grete watches the man she married gradually appearing less and less till she observes 'Einar is dead'.

Shame it's not an entirely true representation of the Wegeners' life: Greta (here a Californian) was in fact all-Danish Gerda. But an extremely well-written and interesting narrative.

Replete with elegantly lyrical prose and superb attention to detail, David Ebershoff's "The Danish Girl" remains among the most notable debut novels of our time. Based loosely on the life of Danish painter Einar Wegener, the first recipient of sex-change surgery, Ebershoff has rendered that into a memorable love story, bringing a New World sensibility by reimaging Wegener's wife as a young American painter who inadvertently plays a major role in encouraging his sexual transformation into Lili Elbe. It is a notable - and courageous - work of fiction for dealing seriously, with ample empathy, sexual identity, as Wegener struggles throughout the novel in trying to come to terms with his own sexual identity. He brilliantly captures the sights and sounds of 1920s Paris, and especially, Copenhagen, as well as Dresden in the early 1930s. Better known now as the editor of some of the most important writers of our time, including the likes of David Mitchell, Stefan Merrill Block, Gary Shteyngart and Teju Cole, Ebershoff demonstrates in "The Danish Girl" why he remains one of the most important writers of contemporary fiction writing in English not only for his finely crafted prose, but for his thoughtful, memorable, explorations of issues such as sexual identity. Soon to be a major motion picture, "The Danish Girl" still warrants a vast readership, not least because it remains a most remarkable introduction to Ebershoff's exceptional literary talent.
