"Hendrik Hofgen is a man obsessed with becoming a famous actor. When the Nazis come to power in Germany, he willingly renounces his Communist past and deserts his wife and mistress in order to keep on performing. His diabolical performance as Mephistopheles in Faust proves to be the stepping-stone he yearned for: attracting the attention of Hermann Goring, it wins Hofgen an appointment as head of the State Theatre. The rewards - the respect of the public, a castle-like villa, a uplace in Berlin's highest circles - are beyond his wildest dreams. But the moral consequences of his betrayals begin to haunt him, turning his dreamworld into a nightmare." -- Book cover

The pious dance : the adventure story of a young man by Klaus Mann( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and German and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klaus Mann, the gifted son of Thomas Mann, published this first novel in 1925, when he was 18. Set mainly in Berlin during the brilliant and tragic years of the short-lived Weimar Republic, it is very much a young man's workromantic, posturing, wide-eyed. The esthete Andreas Magnus aspires to be a painter but instead leaves the cocoon of home to explore the depths of the Berlin demimondethe scarlet world of the cabarets and boulevards, back alleys and rooming houses, of strong drink, cocaine and rampant sex, transvestites, homosexuals and lesbians. His is the ``lost generation,'' too young to have fought in the Great War of 1914-18, wandering amidst the moral debris. A gay friend kills himself outside his door; more a witness than a participant, he, himself, is enamored of a young man who fathers a child upon his one female friend and slips away to Paris. Following his traces, Andreas observes in the bohemian quarter the lurid carnival and bacchanalian revels of the Artists' Ball. Not in Berlin, not in Paris, nor anywhere else will he find the God he seeks, the love he longs for, the Meaning of Life that eludes him
