About the Book

This comprehensive and accessible reference work serves Isherwood scholars who need quick access to people, places, novels, stories, essays and plays, introduces Isherwood to those who know little of him, expands the knowledge of the literate general reader, and refreshes 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.
