About the Author

Christopher Isherwood (1904-1986) was born outside of Manchester, England. His life in Berlin from 1929 to 1933 inspired The Berlin Stories, which were adapted into a play, a film, and the musical Cabaret. Isherwood 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, including the novel A Single Man and his autobiography, Christopher and His Kind.


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