Books Info:

The Seven Addictions and Five Professions of Anita Berber free pdf The first contemporary biography of a notorious actor, dancer, poet and playwright who scandalised sex-obsessed Weimar Berlin during the 1920s. In an era where everything was permitted, Anita Berber's celebrations of |Depravity, Horror and Ecstasy| were condemned and censored. She often haunted Weimar Berlin's hotel lobbies, nightclubs and casinos, radiantly naked except for an elegant sable wrap, a pet monkey hanging from her neck and a silver brooch packed with cocaine. Decadent and outrageous to the end, Berber died at 29, ignored and isolated.
