About this product
- DescriptionThe Duchess of Alba, kwn as Goya's muse, recalls the passions of youth on her deathbed in the royal court of 18th century Madrid. A young woman defies the protocols of her arranged marriage and pursues love and the life of a published writer, until her readers condemn her as a danger to society in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nina Berberova escapes persecution during the Russian Revolution and flees to Paris, where the intelligentsia naively covet the promise of a Soviet Union. In worlds that rarely accomodate female desire, Goya's Glass explores history's guilty pleasures and passions.
