This extraordinary book (profusely illustrated by Lotte Goslar herself) provides through her vivid sketch-like texts a moving and humorous account of her life during a traumatic period in world history. Her acute observations of daily human foibles and vanities are interspersed with her interactions with major figures (Palucca, Voskovec and Werich, Brecht, Charles Laughton and Elsa Lanchster, Hans Sahl, and Marilyn Monroe) revealing to the reader the world of a great artist in movement and mime.
What's So Funny? includes texts by Horst Koegler, Voskovec and Werich, Joel Schechter and Bertoit Brecht.

Industry Reviews

"Her name is Goslar, but she was born in Dresden. She wanted to become a dancer and studied with Palucca, but she became a mime and a clown and created for herself her own form that she called 'Pantomime Circus'. Clive Barnes, until recently the all-powerful critic of The New York Times, took the easy way out and called her simply 'divine'." -Horst Koegler
