From Library Journal:

An affectionate and informal portrait of the author of The Berlin Stories by his late friend, editor, and fellow author. Compiled from letters and diary extracts, Lehmann's memoir reveals little that's new or startling about Isherwood, who emerges as boyish, enthusiastic, and easily distracted, anxious to fulfill himself (Lehmann notes shrewdly) "in every way except as a writer." Lehmann includes an album of photos and several striking drawings of Isherwood by partner Don Bachardy made during Isherwood's final illness. For collections emphasizing 20th-century literature. Grove Koger, Boise P.L., Id.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lehmann, Isherwood's editor and friend for some 50 years, discusses the writer's revolt against his family and country, his conversion to pacifism and yoga, and how he kept his psychic balance amid a peripatetic existence. PW called this an "affecting reminiscence."
