Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood( Book )

305 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 17 languages and held by 1,803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1934, Goodbye to Berlin has been popularized on stage and screen by Julie Harris in I Am a Camera and Liza Minelli in Cabaret. Isherwood magnificently captures 1931 Berlin: charming, with its avenues and cafés; marvelously grotesque, with its nightlife and dreamers; dangerous, with its vice and intrigue; powerful and seedy, with its mobs and millionaires? this was the period when Hitler was beginning his move to power. Goodbye to Berlin is inhabited by a wealth of characters: the unforgettable and?divinely decadent? Sally Bowles; plump Fraulein Schroeder, who considers reducing her Buste to relieve her heart palpitations; Peter and Otto, a gay couple struggling to come to terms with their relationship; and the distinguished and doomed Jewish family, the Landauers."--Back cover
Prater Violet by Christopher Isherwood( Book )

138 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book Violet concerns the filming of an unashamedly romantic and commercial musical about old Vienna. It is a stinging satirical novel about the film industry, trifling studio feuds, and the fatuous movie Prater Violet, which, ironically, counterpoints the tragic events on the world stage as Hitler's lengthening shadow falls over the real Vienna of the thirties. At its center are vivid portraits of the mocking genius Friedrich Bergmann, the imperious, dazzlingly witty Austrian director, and his disciple, a genial young screenwriter-the fictionalized Christopher Isherwood

"A bemused, sometimes acid portrait of people caught in private sexual hells of their own making. Four episodes are connected by four narrators, all of who are called "Christopher Isherwood." Yet each is a different character inhabiting a new setting; Berlin in 1928, the Greek Isles in 1933, London in 1938, and California in 1940"--Page 4 of cover

First published in 1967, A Meeting by the River delicately depicts the complexity of sibling relationships - the resentment and competitiveness as well as the love and respect."--Jacket
