Goodbye to Berlin




Dust Jacket Designer:


Isherwood's well known collection of autobiographical stories about his time in Berlin. Of great relevance to the question of how to locate the division between truth and fiction, Isherwood portrays his real acquaintances and describes the landscape of Germany in the few years preceding WWII, but uses fictionalized names and exaggerates circumstances. The book was sold as fiction, despite the fact that Isherwood's narrator takes his own name.
