About the Author

Christopher Isherwood (1904-1986) was born in Manchester, England, and lived in Berlin from 1929 to 1933 and immigrated to the United States in 1939. A major figure in twentieth-century fiction and the gay rights movement, he wrote more than twenty books. FSG Classics presents some of his finest work, including the novels Prater Violet, A Single Man, and A Meeting by the River; the semi-autobiographical Lions and Shadows; and the memoir Christopher and His Kind.

Reviews

"Indispensable for admirers of this truly masterly writer." --Peter Stansky, The New York Times Book Review

"The best prose writer in English... The later Isherwood is even better than the early cameraman." --Gore Vidal, The New York Review of Books

"Isherwood freely discusses a dimension of his experience previously repressed in his fiction, his homosexuality. And in telling the truth about himself, he ultimately transcends the limits of autobiography to write what is, in effect, another novel." --Paul Piazza, The Washington Post
