9780786190645: Mozart's Wife

Giddy sugarplum? Calculating shrew? Mozart's biographers show disdain for his Konstanze, and she aroused strong feelings among her contemporaries. Her in-laws loathed her; his friends, more than forty years after his death, remained eager to gossip about her "failures" as wife to the world's first superstar. Maturing from child, to wife, to hardheaded widow, Konstanze paid her husband's debts, provided for their children, and relentlessly marketed and mythologized her brilliant husband. Mozart's letters attest to his affection for Konstanze as well as to their powerful sexual bond. Yet the question remains: Why did she never mark his grave?

From the Author:

Twenty-some years of research and pondering went into "Mozart's Wife." Possessed by the spirit of Mozart and by his music, I wanted to discover the truth of his short, brilliant life. It seemed to me that no one on earth knew him as intimately as his wife, so it was her story I wanted to learn. Of course, this was easier said than done. The Mozart Family Letters were an invaluable resource in which I searched for the details of the day-to-day and clues about the two central characters . As I learned more, I began to understand the problems of our foremothers, when biology was, inexorably, destiny. Despite the difficulties and frequent emotional discomfort, I wanted to travel to that time and place, to actually live there, not as a tourist marveling at "odd" customs or fancy dress, but as an inhabitant of a genuine--sometimes gritty, sometimes glamorous--18th Century world.

From the Back Cover:

Based on original sources, including family letters and scholarly biographies, "Mozart'sWife" is a fascinating work of historical fiction, an entertaining and sometimes erotic looks at a remarkable woman who earned the lifelong love of one of history's most remarkable men."

~~ Gregory Harris, BookPage
