'Drawing on previously unpublished correspondence and diaries made available to the author by Brecht's widow and son, interviews and intelligence files, Fuegi reveals a lifetime of personal and political deception. he shows that as much as eighty percent of works such as The Threepenny Opera, which have given Brecht his iconic stature, were written in a 'sex-for-text scheme' by other writers, particularly Elisabeth Hauptmann, but also Grete Steffin and Ruth Berlay, three of his lovers.'
