Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Michel Faber and Sarah Waters, here's a literary historical novel about an orphan girl's journey from poverty to film stardom, set against the grand backdrop of World War I Berlin, the cabaret era, the run-up to World War II, and the innovations in art and industry that accompanied it all.

Depressing

the most depressing story ever told, I kept waiting on her exciting life to unfold, it barely did and in the the last 20 minutes of a 14Hour story I cant believe I stayed with it that long.
