Overview

This comprehensive and accessible reference work will serve Isherwood scholars who need quick access to people, places, novels, stories, essays and plays, introduce Isherwood to those who know little of him, expand the knowledge of the literate general reader, and refresh teachers of literature with Isherwood details.

Entries on Isherwood's most influential friends, including W.H. Auden, Aldous Huxley and Stephen Spender, are significant. Included are all of the monumental "roles" Isherwood exemplified during his life-writer, rebel, gay-activist hero, and proud exponent of the Eastern philosophy known as Vedanta.
