Summary:
In 1900, a teenage Jewish girl, hiding under the pseudonym Marie-Madeleine, pens a book of erotic poetry that becomes a bestseller, sparking strong criticisms. She marries into a Prussian noble family while she hides in dozens of books as a passionate voice of love, lesbianism and sexuality. Nazis doomed her work by labeling it "degenerate art" and the world soon forgot her. In this groundbreaking volume, her newly translated work reveals a life-long relationship with morphine that ends with her mysterious death in a sanatorium under Nazi care.
