In 1939 Christopher Isherwood and W.H. Auden emigrated together to the United States. In spare, luminous prose, these diaries describe Isherwood's search for a new life in California; his work as a screenwriter in Hollywood, his pacifism during World War II and his friendships with such gifted artists and intellectuals as Garbo, Charles Chaplin, Thomas Mann, Charles Laughton and Aldous Huxley.

About the Author:

Christopher Isherwood, among the most celebrated writers of his generation, was born in Cheshire in 1904. He left Cambridge without graduation, briefly studied medicine and then turned to writing his first novels All the Conspirators (1928) and The Memorial (1932). Between 1929 and 1939 he lived mostly abroad, spending four years in Berlin, and then elsewhere in Europe, producing the novels Mr Norris Changes Trains (1935) and Goodbye to Berlin (1939) on which the musical Cabaret was later based. Following his move to America (he became a U.S citizen in 1946), Isherwood wrote another five novels, including Down There on a Visit and A Single Man, a travel book about South America and a biography of the great Indian mystic Ramakrishna. During the 1970s he began producing a series of autobiographical books: Kathleen and Frank, Christopher and his Kind, My Guru and his Disciple and October, the text of one month of his diary published with drawings by Don Barchady. Christopher Isherwood died in January 1986.
