One closed to the front joint. Isherwood’s novella based on cabaret singer Jean Ross, republished later in his novel Goodbye Berlin. The character of Bowles would be taken up in other works, including the play and film versions of I Am a Camera (1951 / 1955) and Cabaret (1966 / 1972), and was an influence on other writers’ characters, such as Capote’s Holly Golightly.
