Summary
Set in Vienna in the 1920s, David Vogel's great novel Married Life is the portrait of a disastrous marriage between Dr Rudolf Gurdweill, a young Jewish writer, and Baroness Thea von Takow, an anti-Semitic aristocrat. Betrayal is a permanent feature of this miserable marriage, marked by von Takow's frequent infidelities and Gurdweill's desultory affair with Lotte, the woman who really loves him. The novel abounds with vivid descriptions of the city and its various inhabitants, for whom the consumption of countless cigarettes and cups of coffee, and endless rendezvous in caf©♭s, seem to be central to their existence. Among the characters are the man who is in love with Lotte; a repulsive bookseller; a philosopher-shoemaker; and Thea's sadistic brother.
