Prater Violet : a novel by Christopher Isherwood( Book )
94 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,472 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"--P. [4] of cover

A deeply introspective book about war, religion, and sexuality A deeply introspective book about war, religion, and sexuality. Against the backdrop of World War II, The World in the Evening charts the emotional development of Stephen Monk, an aimless Englishman living in California. After his second marriage suddenly ends, Stephen finds himself living with a relative in a small Pennsylvania Quaker town, haunted by memories of his prewar affair with a younger man during a visit to the Canary Islands. The world traveler comes to a gradual understanding of himself and of his newly adopted homeland. When first published in 1953, The World in the Evening was notable for its clear-eyed depiction of European and American mores, sexuality, and religion. Today, readers herald Christopher Isherwood's frank portrayal of bisexuality and his early appreciation of low and high camp
