From Wikipedia:

“GOODBYE TO BERLIN is a 1939 novel by Christopher Isherwood, set in Weimar Germany. The novel, a semi-autobiographical account of Isherwood's time in 1930s Berlin, describes pre-Nazi Germany and the people he met. It is episodic, dealing with a large cast over a period of several years from late 1930 to early 1933. It is written as a connected series of six short stories and novellas. These are: "A Berlin Diary (Autumn 1930)," "Sally Bowles," "On Ruegen Island (Summer 1931)," "The Nowaks," "The Landauers," and "A Berlin Diary (Winter 1932-3)." Moving to Germany to work on his novel, Isherwood soon becomes involved with a diverse array of German citizens: the landlady, Frau Schroeder; the "divinely decadent" Sally Bowles, a young Englishwoman who sings in the local cabare; her coterie of admirers; Natalia Landauer, the rich, Jewish heiress of a prosperous family business; and Peter and Otto, a gay couple struggling to accept their relationship and sexuality in light of the rise of the Nazis. The book, first published in 1939, highlights the groups of people who would be most at risk from Nazi intimidation. It was described by contemporary writer George Orwell as "brilliant sketches of a society in decay" . . . "
