Vienna Passion

Vienna Passion

Author(s): Lilian Faschinger

Location(s): Vienna

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Turn of 20th Century / later 20th Century

VIENNA PASSION is the autobiography of Rosa, a chambermaid, royal mistress and murderess, whose life mirrors all the sordid glamour of Vienna at the turn of the century. It is interleaved with the story of a tentative romance: that of Magnolia, a young New Yorker, and her singing-teacher in Vienna. Despite her lover’s hypochondria and mother-fixation, however, Magnolia is just as much her own woman as Rosa ever was. More so, indeed, than either woman could ever have imagined.
