Reviews

  • His key postwar work. A quarter-century ahead of its time in its portrayal of a quotidian homosexual life, it inspired a generation of gay writers in Britain and the US

    Independent
  • This mix of humour and stoicism in the face of pent-up grief is essential Isherwood

    Guardian
  • His own highly personal form of fiction [is one] in which simple sentences strike a note of great intimacy with the reader as if to a close personal friend, and a sense of total honesty is sought. This style, witty, observant, nostalgic, exact, was Isherwood's great contribution to modern literature

    Financial Times
  • He had dazzling talents as a writer. His literary production was pre-eminent for its wit, humour, charm of style and narrative skill... A Single Man can be almost considered as his masterpiece

    John Lehmann, Guardian
  • Very sad and yet at times wildly funny

    The Daily Telegraph
