paperback ISBN 13: 9780099561071 | ISBN 10: 0099561077
Isherwood's candid memoir of his life in 1930s Berlin. A seminal book of gay liberation which made him the grand old man of the movement.
In November 1929, Christopher Isherwood - determined to become a 'permanent foreigner' - packed a rucksack and two suitcases and left England on a one-way ticket for Berlin. With incredible candour and wit, Isherwood recalls the decadence of Berlin's night scene and his route to sexual liberation. As the Nazis rise to power, Isherwood describes his dramatic struggle to save his partner Heinz from the persecution of the Third Reich.
