Abstract:

The collection consists of six items: three undated letters and two postal cards, 28 May 1946 and 24 Nov. 1946, to Paul Amann, tracing the translation of Isherwood's Prater Violet into German by Amann. Complicating the translation is Berthold Viertel, an acquaintance of Isherwood's in Berlin, who appears in the work as "Friederick Bergmann," and Isherwood wants to ensure that he has input into the translation so the publication does not present him in a misleading way.

Also, one typed airmail lettergram to Howard L. Nelson, 5 Nov. 1962, answering a question about Isherwood's stay in Berlin and incidents in his Berlin stories.
