Synopsis

Best known for "Goodbye to Berlin" - the inspiration for "Cabaret" - Christopher Isherwood is considered as both a literary and a gay pioneer. This volume collects 24 essays and interviews on his life and work offering and in-depth view of the author, his literary legacy and his continuing influence. Mixing critiques with personal reminiscences, the book includes an essay and drawings by artist Don Bachardy, Isherwood's longtime partner; recollections from authors Armistead Maupin and Edmund White; memoirs by scholar Carolyn Heilbrun and poet Michael S. Harper; and two interviews - one of Isherwood by Carola M. Kaplan in 1973 and Niladri Chatterjee's 1997 conversation with Don Bachardy.
