David Ebershoff, author of The Danish Girl, on tour May 2010

About The Danish Girl

Loosely 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?

It starts with a question, a simple favor asked of a husband by his wife on an afternoon chilled by the Baltic wind while both are painting in their studio. Her portrait model has canceled, and would he mind slipping into a pair of women’s shoes and stockings for a few moments so she can finish the painting on time. “Of course,” he answers. “Anything at all.” With that, one of the most passionate and unusual love stories of the twentieth century begins.

Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow are slated to star in the film adaptation of this masterful novel that The Boston Globe calls “heartbreaking and unforgettable.”

    Are you looking for hosts?! I’m interested!

    I really enjoyed THE 19TH WIFE and meeting David; I’ve been intending to read his backlist … SO exciting that this is being made into film!

  2. Do you still have room on this tour? I’d love to be able to review this book, it sounds fascinating.
