From the back cover
This volume contains two novels. Mr. Norris Changes Trains "portrays the encounter and growing friendship between young William Bradshaw and the urbane and mildly sinister Mr. Norris. Piquant, witty and oblique, it vividly evokes the atmosphere of pre-war Berlin, and forcefully conveys an ironic political parable." Goodbye to Berlin was the inspiration for the musical Cabaret and "remains one of the most powerful novels of the century, a haunting evocation of the gathering storm of the Nazi terror. Told in a series of wry, detached and impressionistic vignettes, it is an unforgettable portrait of bohemian Berlin--a city and a world on the very brink of ruin."
