Description

Discover the dark and decadent novella that inspired Cabaret.

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 self-indulgent Sally Bowles.

A great talent * Guardian * Isherwood is a master of the emotionally cathartic moment, funny and perspicacious * Evening Standard * A masterpiece * The Economist * [A] reminder of a bygone era, powerfully capturing the energy and sleaze of Weimar-era Berlin * Independent * Reading this novel is much like overhearing anecdotes in a crowded bar while history knocks impatiently at the windows * Guardian, 1000 novels everyone must read *
