Product description


"Isherwood's account is endearingly honest... a journal not only unusually objective but in parts shockingly frank. You are left feeling you have truly got to know Christopher Isherwood... A welcome supplement to Isherwood's Diaries and provides futher insight into a major literary figure" (Scotland on Sunday)

"In Lost Years Isherwood lays bare his mid-life crisis with critical self-candour, never losing his engaging manner nor his sense of humour... His diaries are the basis for all his creative work, and Lost Years is the most revealing so far" (Harpers & Queen)

"Positively compulsive" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Isherwood remains a curious and memorable writer... A master of translucent prose, the events and people of these years seem to be described by a narrator as perceptive as he is unobtrusive" (The Times)

Book Description

'His writing soon becomes addictive as one self-disclosure follows another. What better recommendation for a diary could there be?' - The Times
