The resulting novel, The Artificial Silk Girl, became an acclaimed bestseller and a masterwork of German literature, in the tradition of Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories and Bertolt Brecht's Three Penny Opera. Like Isherwood and Brecht, Keun revealed the dark underside of Berlin's "golden twenties" with empathy and honesty.   Let us now look at some more similarities and differences. Differences: The word ‘art’ in art silk does not refer to being artistic. Art silk essentially refers to artificial silk. While real silk is made by cultivating silk worms that feed on mulberry leaves, artificial silk is made from cellulose fibre and mixture of materials like rayon.
