A DOLL'S HOUSE BY HENRIK IBSEN // ANIMATED BOOK SUMMARY
The Dollhouse is the riveting story of two American women living at the famed Barbizon Hotel sixty years apart. In , the Barbizon is a New York boarding house for aspiring models, editors and secretaries. Darby McLaughlin is there to attend secretarial school, but under the tutelage of a Barbizon maid, she is swept into a dangerous night life. In , the Barbizon has been converted to condominiums, but a few of the s women are still living there in rent-controlled apartments. A journalist whose own life is in disarray, Rose decides to investigate her reclusive neighbor. Effectively switching between the past and the present, The Dollhouse tells the story of two women struggling to define themselves, their friendships and their careers. It illustrates not only all the things that have changed for women, but also those that have stayed the same.
