GOODBYE TO BERLIN

London: The Hogarth Press, 1954. Hardcover. Fourth impression, accompaned by the publisher's printed wraparound band (The book of the play 'I am a Camera'). A semiautobiographical account of Isherwood's time in 1930s Berlin, describing pre-Nazi Germany and the people he encountered. Described by George Orwell as "brilliant sketches of a society in decay," it remains Isherwood's best known work. The novel was adapted by John Van Druten into the Broadway play I Am a Camera (1951), and then a less successful 1951 film starring Laurence Harvey, Shelley Winters, and Julie Harris. The book was then adapted into the Tony Award-winnng musical Cabaret (1966) and the 1972 film of the same name for which Liza Minnelli won an Academy Award. This copy is inscribed by Isherwood on the title page. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. Light sun fading to the spine. The dust jacket is browned along the spine and folds, with a bit of minor edgewear; otherwise very good. Very good / Very good. Item #66196
