"Prater Violet is a stingingly satirical novel about the film industry, centering around the production of the vacuous fictional melodrama Prater Violet.

Originally published in 1945, the novel features the vivid portraits of imperious, passionate, and witty Austrian director Friedrich Bergmann, and his disciple, a genial young screenwriter-- the fictionalized Christopher Isherwood "--Container.
