4.0 out of 5 stars A Berlin Cabaret, 7 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Mr Norris Changes Trains (Paperback)
Remembered, if at all, as the origin of the musical Cabaret; this book stays in my memory, not because of Mr Norris (he would be glad to hear), but because it brings to life the Berlin of the 1930's and it's peculiar innocence before the fall into Nazism. One gradually realises the characters innocence is presented by Mr Isherwood as a cause of the fall rather than the decadance we are usually enjoined to condemn. Not having been there at the time one cannot easily accept or reject such a conclusion, but it does give pause for thought.
