Prater Violet : a novel by Christopher Isherwood( Book )
154 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 1,642 libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1945, Prater Violet is a stingingly satirical novel about the film industry. It centers around the production of the vacuous fictional melodrama Prater Violet, set in nineteenth-century Vienna, providing ironic counterpoint to tragic events as Hitler annexes the real Vienna of the 1930s. 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."--Jacket

Yet each is a different character inhabiting a new setting; Berlin in 1928, the Greek Isles in 1933, London in 1938, and California in 1940"--Page 4 of cover

The world traveler comes to a gradual understanding of himself and of his newly adopted homeland.
