Summary (From the publisher):

First published in 1935 and 1939, the two related novels, The Last of Mr. Norris and Goodbye to Berlin, which make up The Berlin Stories are recognized today as classics of modern fiction.

A charming city of avenues and cafes, a grotesque city of night-people and fantasts, a dangerous city of vice and virtue, of millionaires and mobs -- all this was Berlin in 1931, the period when Hitler was beginning his move to power.

Here are Mr. Norris, the improbable old debauchee mysteriously caught in the struggle between the Nazis and the Communists; plump Fräulein Schroeder, who thinks an operation to reduce the scale of her Büste might relieve her heart palpitations; the Landauers, a distinguished and doomed Jewish family; Sally Bowles, whose misadventures in the demimonde were popularized on the American stage and screen by Julie Harris in "I Am a Camera" and Liza Minnelli in "Cabaret."
