Synopsis:

Christopher Isherwood originally intended Down There on a Visit to be part of The Lost, the unfinished epic novel that would also incorporate his famous Berlin Stories. Tracing many of the same themes as that earlier work, this novel is a bemused, sometimes acid portrait of people caught in private sexual hells of their own making. Its four episodes are connected by four narrators. All are called "Christopher Isherwood, " but each is a different character inhabiting a new setting: Berlin in 1928, the Greek Isles in 1933, London in 1938, and California in 1940. Down There on a Visit is a major work that shows Isherwood at the height of his literary powers.


Review:

"Few writers have so inspiringly scrutinized their worlds. 'Down There on a Visit' is outrageous, bitter, bleak, angry, wry, revealing, infuriating, and at times marvelously comic....It belongs with Rousseau's 'Confessions' and Gide's 'Journals' and it has about it the authentic ring of a small offbeat classic."

William Peden, Saturday Review

Review:

"In several respects this is probably Isherwood's best novel. It offers the sheer pleasure of writing completely personal and yet completely controlled, radiant with observation, never wasting a word, funny and sympathetic."

Stephen Spender, New Republic
