At 18, Lina is an aspiring actress and the stunning daughter of Viennese coffeehouse owners. When the imperial capital's most sought-after bachelor, Adolf Loos, unexpectedly proposes, she eagerly agrees. But the honeymoon is short-lived. Her "modern" husband might be friends with women activists but his publicly progressive views do not extend to his young wife. Thank goodness for the sympathetic ear of Café Central's beloved, old poet, Peter Altenberg. But when Adolf Loos unwittingly pushes Lina into the arms of his activist friend's handsome son, Lina becomes entangled in a web of desire, jealousy and intrigue. No man's love is unconditional. As the three friends rival to mold her into the perfect wife, muse and lover, Lina strives to recall the woman she once imagined herself to be. Fact and fiction weave together with history and romance in this tragic yet inspiring tale of Lina Loos' struggle for love, liberation and self-fulfillment during her years of marriage to the renowned architect, Adolf Loos.
Set in the early 1900s in fin-de-siècle Vienna, Women and Wild Savages tells the timeless story of a person's journey to recognize and be herself in a world determined to make her into someone else.
