Description

This is a splendidly-illustrated biography of Weimar Berlin's sordid and influential dancer, playwright and actress. 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. Multi-talented Anita saw no boundaries between her personal life and her taboo-shattering performances.
