So by now it should come as a shock to absolutely no one that lately my obsessions have been with cabarets and the acid decadence of Weimar-era Germany, the 1930's and 40's, and old starlets. I think my fixation with Anita Berber is beginning to bore or trouble most of my acquaintances, but I just want to know more about her. She seems like a made-up character sometimes, too wild to be real. Yesterday, I put in an order for that book.
I paid more for that book than I probably should have, but it's out of print now.
I also want to read this new biography of Hedy Lamarr that's just come out. Sounds like a crazy life story too.
