Norman Page's aims in writing this book were, as I believe, modest but very worthwhile. He intended to add to the store of information about this German chapter in British literary history. He intended that the information should be accurate, and purged of romantic and self-serving myths. Most importantly, he wanted to convience his readers that the Berlin years were artistically formative in the careers of two (and possibly three) major British writers. If these were his intentions Page has succeeded, and the proof will be the essential place which Auden and Isherwood: The Berlin Years will occupy on our shelves.' - John Sutherland The Cambridge Quarterly
'Although quite short, the book is wide-ranging, taking in topography, biography, political and social history, and literary criticism...always stimulating and informative, enlivened by humour and some nice touches of asperity'. - Peter Parker, Times Literary Supplement
'Entertaining and insightful reading, highly recommended'. - Robert Kelly, Library Journal
