Forged in the Weimar Republic's heady mix of art and politics, the partnership between the playwright and Marxist intellectual Bertolt Brecht and the avant-garde composer Kurt Weill was one of the most important artistic collaborations of the 20th century. In telling the story of that partnership, this book is the first to emphasize the important roles of three women: Weill's wife, Lotte Lenya; Brecht's wife, the actress Helene Weigel; and Elisabeth Hauptmann, Brecht's lover, secretary and literary collaborator. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge, slightly off-mint and American-cut pages.
