Christopher and His Kind by Christopher Isherwood

Christopher and His Kind by Christopher Isherwood


In November 1929, Christopher Isherwood - determined to become a 'permanent foreigner' - packed a rucksack and two suitcases and left England on a one-way ticket for Berlin. With incredible candour and wit, Isherwood recalls the decadence of Berlin's night scene and his route to sexual liberation. As the Nazis rise to power, Isherwood describes his dramatic struggle to save his partner Heinz from persecution. With an introduction by Gore Vidal. First published in the UK in 1977. 




'The best prose writer in English.' - Gore Vidal


'Indispensable for admirers of this truly masterly writer.' - New York Times


'Christopher and His Kind is written with the lucidity, the intelligence, and the wit that we have come to expect from Isherwood at his best.' 

- New Statesman
