Overview

Christopher Isherwood's literary output-novels, stories, plays, screenplays, essays-is broad in scope and rich in detail. And his life is as interesting as his work, marked by philosophical exploration and friendships with other important literary figures of the twentieth centruy.

This comprehensive and accessible reference work will provide quick access to people, places, novels, stories, essays, plays, and events in Isherwood's life. Entries discuss Isherwood's most influential friends, including W.H. Auden, Aldous Huxley and Stephen Spender, as well as 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.
