it was amazing

One of my favorites. An amazing picture of the Berlin demi-monde of the 1930s pursuing their alternative lifestyles and ignoring the political crisis that is percolating in the background. The brief glimpses of political change are all the more chilling to the reader who has an awareness that the homosexual characters will soon be a target of the new regime. Some of the Berlin Stories are the basis for the musical 'Cabaret'.
