PP London YR 2003 SN 1904341136 9781904341130 1904341128 9781904341123 AB "Marlene Dietrich, shaped by her Prussian bourgeois background and the Berlin of the 1920s, lived with unconventional passion. A cosmopolitan star, she used the power of glamour and conviction as a weapon against Nazi Germany. Her legend became so important that she spent her last decade in total seclusion, rather than let her audiences witness her decline. "It makes no difference how she breaks your heart," wrote Ernest Hemingway, "if she is there to mend it.""--Jacket.
