    eBook Mr Norris Changes Trains PDF ´ Mr Norris ePUB Ý ´ posthd.pro norris download, changes download, trains ebok, Mr Norris kindle, Mr Norris Changes Trains PDF/EPUBThis is one of Isherwood’s Berlin novels; almost an historical novel of the last years of the Weimar Republic and was published in 1935 Isherwood was part of a group of young English writers and poets who found England repressive and sought a form of exile this is also partly a novel of exile; the group included Auden and Spender as well Berlin was the choice for Isherwood mainly because an elderly relative had warned him against it saying it was the vilest place since Sodom Of course for gay men such as Isherwood and Auden Berlin was much liberal and less repressed than EnglandThe two main characters are thinly disguised The narrator is a young man called William Bradshaw Isherwood’s middle names who is travelling to Berlin to be a private tutor Because Isherwood wanted to put the main focus on Norris he makes Bradshaw a voyeur who watches what

    eBook Mr Norris Changes Trains PDF ´ Mr Norris ePUB Ý ´ posthd.pro norris download, changes download, trains ebok, Mr Norris kindle, Mr Norris Changes Trains PDF/EPUBWhat I expected from this book Suave homosexual man has affair with Englishman he met on a train in Berlin against the backdrop of the rise of Nazism What I got from this book Weird possibly bisexual man gets into too much trouble with the authorities because of his schemes to make money while his possibly bisexual friend tries to protect him from himself It's a good book with fantastically understated writing but it's a far cry from what I expected I also didn't see the point Not all fiction must have a point it can exist simply for the sake of itself but here given the structure and the characters it feels as if Isherwood should have delivered Apart from offering a screenshot of Berlin at the crossroads of History I didn't uite see the idea behind the story In any case it's a good fast read great to get into Is
