Review

"Compulsively readable...a testament to his connections to the literati and Hollywood glitterati...a fitting finale to a fascinating life"--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Christopher Isherwood continues to perform open-heart surgery on himself, without anaesthestic, and with one beady eye on the audience...a rare treat."--The Guardian

"Isherwood proves a captivating, honest diarist, his entries rich with reflection and gossip."--Booklist

"Unique literary archives...Ultimately LIBERATION is a real-time gallery of men in love at a time when the world was nowhere near catching up with them."--Huffington Post

"But the gold mine of Isherwood work has been the posthumous publication of three huge diaries amounting to almost 3,000 pages. Comprehensively and lovingly edited and annotated by Katherine Bucknell, these volumes give us the most detailed portrait of the writer..."--San Francisco Chronicle

Compulsively readable a testament to his connections to the literati and Hollywood glitterati a fitting finale to a fascinating life --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"

Alongside sharp and often very funny assessments of those Isherwood knew, the diaries also record a wealth of domestic detail giving a richly textured sense of what it was like to live in California during this period of social change. --Jonathan Mirsky, The Spectator (A Book of the Year)"

From the Back Cover

In this final volume of Christopher Isherwood's diaries, the celebrated writer greets advancing age with poignant humor and an unquenchable appetite for the new. Isherwood deepens his study of Hinduism, writes his final books, and immerses himself in the vibrant creative scenes of the 1970s. With his long-term companion, Don Bachardy, Isherwood delves into the art worlds of Los Angeles, New York, and London, where he meets Rauschenberg, Ruscha, Warhol, and Hockney. Collaborating with Bachardy on scripts for Broadway and Hollywood, he encounters John Huston, Merchant and Ivory, John Travolta, David Bowie, Jon Voight, Armistead Maupin, Elton John, and Joan Didion. This volume is a densely populated human comedy, sketched with both ruthlessness and benevolence against the background of the Vietnam War, the energy crisis, and the Nixon, Carter, and Reagan White Houses. The final installment of Isherwood's masterwork reveals a man candidly fearful of his approaching death, and yet engaged in the vitality and energy of daily life.
