Product Description

Review

"A brilliant enigma." (New York Times)

"W H AUDEN, Louis MacNeice, Stephen Spender, Christopher Isherwood, C Day Lewis. The brat-pack of their day. They are still considered by many to have been the great writers of the 1930s... Isherwood alone produced his greatest work during the thirties - Mr Norris Changes Trains (1935), Lions and Shadows (1938), Goodbye to Berlin (1939) - and yet more than any of the others he deserves to be regarded as a quintessentially modern writer, a writer with whom we can identify, a writer whose life was his work, and vice-versa." (Guardian)

Not Isherwoods best novel by a long shot. He later blamed its failure by trying to write about a bisexual male.But there are excellent passages of writing; especially the first chapter and the definition of high camp.
This is, perhaps, Isherwoods most emotional novel and this at times feels forced as if Hollywood script writing has taken its toll on his style. But moreover it is his first American novel and clears the path for the first of his later day classics, Down There on a Visit (Vintage Classics)

Not one of Isherwood's best, which is say that's still a very good book, but for me it felt a bit too rigid.
