Prater Violet, Paperback Book

Prater Violet Paperback

Paperback

Description

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.
