From the back cover: "I recommend Effi Briest...first class--uplifting, shaming, beautiful to make you weep." -Thomas Mann.. Octavo. 245 pages.


Effi Briest is widely considered to be Theodor Fontane’s masterpiece and one of the most famous German realist novels of all time. Thomas Mann once said that if one had to reduce one’s library to six novels, Effi Briest would have to be one of them. Published in 1894, the novel forms a trilogy on marriage in the nineteenth century from the female point of view along with the more famous Anna Karenina and Madame Bovary. All three are adultery tragedies.
