about this book

Condemned as “sordid” and “immoral” on its publication in 1899, this story of a woman trapped in her marriage effectively ended Chopin’s career but was revived as a proto-feminist classic in the 1970s. What Newsweek calls Chopin's “prophetic psychology” insures its timeliness today.
