The Truth About Lou
A (necessary) FictioneBook - 2006
Born to an aristocratic family in Russia, Lou Andreas-Salom (1861-1937) became a well-known writer in Europe and real-life muse to the likes of Nietzsche, Rilke and Freud. Von der Lippe defines Lou by her relationships to the men around her: a first love with a married clergyman, her friendship with Paul Ree, the relationship with Nietzsche (who proposes marriage twice), her dramatic but sexless marriage to Friedrich Carl Andreas, her great love for Rilke, and her later involvement with Freud's circle.
