Description - Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood

Set in the 1930s, Goodbye to Berlin evokes the glamour and sleaze, excess and repression of Berlin society. Isherwood shows the lives of people at 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.

Book Reviews - Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood

UK Kirkus Review » Isherwood taught English in Berlin from 1929 to 1933 and in Goodbye to Berlin wrote a semi-autobiographical record of his experiences. It remains the archetypal sketch of prewar Berlin, its bars and its boys, and introduces the immortal Sally Bowles. Before the dawn of Cabaret, Goodbye to Berlin was adapted into a play by John van Druten as I Am a Camera in 1951. (Kirkus UK)
