Goodbye To Berlin BookRegular price £9.99
The 1939 novel that was adapted into the 1951 Broadway play I Am a Camera by John Van Druten and, later, the 1966 Cabaret musical and the 1972 film starring Liza Minelli.
Set in the 1930s, Goodbye to Berlin, evokes the glamour and sleaze, excess and repression of Berlin society.
Isherwood shows the lives of people under threat from the rise of the Nazis: a wealthy Jewish heiress, Natalia Landauer, a gay couple, Peter and Otto, and an English upper-class waif, the divinely decadent Sally Bowles.
"A brilliant semi-autobiographical account of early 1930’s Berlin."
Lonely Planet Magazine
"A great talent."
"Isherwood is a master of the emotionally cathartic moment, funny and perspicacious."
"[A] reminder of a bygone era, powerfully capturing the energy and sleaze of Weimar-era Berlin."
