Alfred Duhrssen
Difficult Women

Alfred Duhrssen was born in the U.S.A. but spent most of his adult life in Europe. He held two doctorate degrees but taught for only a short time at the University of Chicago. As a combat engineer during WWII he learned that love and war were not far apart. He settled in the village of Deya on the island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean, where he spent much of his time reading and writing. His first book, Memoir of an Aged Child, received a rave review in The New York Times. After many years he decided to publish Difficult Women. The book is about how difficult women can be. Apparently they were for him. He was a brilliant scholar and an excellent writer.
