Description
This second volume of Christopher Isherwood's diaries opens on his 56th birthday, as the 1950s give way to the decade of social and sexual revolution. Traveling from the bohemian sunshine of Southern California to a London finally swinging free of postwar gloom, from a cosmopolitan New York to the raw Australian outback, Isherwood charts his quest for spiritual certainty under the guidance of his Hindu guru and reveals in detail his love for the American painter Don Bachardy, 30 years his junior. The diaries are crammed with wicked gossip and probing psychological insights about the cultural icons of the time—Francis Bacon, Richard Burton, Leslie Caron, Marianne Faithfull, David Hockney, Mick Jagger, Hope Lange, W. Somerset Maugham, John Osborne, Vanessa Redgrave, Tony Richardson, David O. Selznick, Igor Stravinsky, Gore Vidal, and many others. But the diaries are most revealing about Isherwood himself—his fiction (including A Single Man), his film writing, his college teaching, and his affairs of the heart. He moves easily from Beckett to Brando, from arthritis to aggression, from the opening of Caberet (which he skipped) to a close analysis of Gide.
