A fictional first person account of film-making. The Prater is a large park and amusement park in Vienna, a city important to characters in the novel for several reasons. Isherwood's parable is a story of the making of a rather shoddy British motion picture under the supervision of an Austrian director who has already felt the first impact of fascist terror.
Though Isherwood broke onto the literary scene as a novelist, he eventually worked in Hollywood as a screenwriter. In the novel, Isherwood comments on life art, commercialization of art and Nazism.
