With pre-publication media and buzz, and sales in ten foreign countries to date, David Ebershoff's The Danish Girl is poised for international success. Inspired by the true story of Danish painter Einar Wegener and his California-born wife, this tender portrait of a marriage asks "What do you do when someone you love wants to change?"

Set against the glitz and decadence of 1920s Copenhagen, Dresden, and Paris, The Danish Girl eloquently portrays 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 the woman who would sacrifice anything for him. Uniting fact and fiction into a unique romantic vision. The Danish Girl explores the wry heart of what connects men and women -- and what separates them. But this book, like Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha, transcends the confines of sex and gender and historical place. Ultimately, The Danish Girls lush prose and generous emotional insight make it, after the last page is turned, a love story that no reader will soon forget. With The Danish Girl. David Ebershoff will make one of the year's dazzling lit

display_description Loosely inspired by a true story, this tender portrait of marriage asks: What do you do when the person you love has to change? It starts with a question, a simple favor asked by a wife of her husband while both are painting in their studio, setting off a transformation neither can anticipate. Uniting fact and fiction into an original romantic vision, The Danish Girl eloquently portrays the unique intimacy that defines every marriage and the remarkable story of Lili Elbe, a pioneer in transgender history, and the woman torn between loyalty to her marriage and her own ambitions and desires. The Danish Girl's lush prose and generous emotional insight make it, after the last page is turned, a deeply moving first novel about one of the most passionate and unusual love stories of the 20th century.
