ByKarin Michaëlis

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“At forty-two, approaching that ‘dangerous age’ and determined to eliminate the hypocrisy in her life, Elsie divorces her husband, leaves behind a young potential lover, and retreats to an isolated villa on an island... First published in 1910, [this] is still a shockingly forthright and provocative book.” —Erica Bauermeister, 500 Great Books by Women Karin Michaëlis (1872-1950) was a prolific Danish novelist, perhaps now best remembered for her Bibi series for children. However, in the early Twentieth Century, she was infamous for what were seen as explicit, alarming books about the natures and inner lives of women. The best, and best-known, of these was The Dangerous Age, which ran to seven editions in its first ten months of publication.
