About the book:

The first English translation of a mature work by the greatest German novelist of the nineteenth century, a brilliant portrait of a female in a starkly male-dominated society. A story of mutual sexual attraction at a fashionable spa moves to a grim climax among the high-society fringe of Berlin. Given the author's sympathy with the position of a woman in a man's world, and the setting of the new German capital of Berlin, this is as relevant today as when it was first written. ""Conveys an astonishingly full picture of German society in rapid and often costly change."" - The Times. ""Written with wit and a controlled fury and Radcliffe's elegant translation does it superb justice. More, please."" - The Observer. ""This is a solid, long-overdue, and welcome contribution to the body of classical works of German literature in translation, and it compares favorably with Douglas Parmé's translation of Effi Briest, the best known novel by Fontane in the English-Speaking world."" - Translation Review.
