• A major literary essential part of his oeuvre

  • There is not a page that does not contain a good joke, original insight, deadly accurate description or delicious nugget of gossip... A major literary work, the diaries round off the writer both as man and artist. They are intimate and intensely personal

    Independent on Sunday
  • There is plenty to enjoy in this first volume...Isherwood's is an exemplary twentieth-century life: assured and neurotic, fearless and fretful, generous and small-minded, forgiving and remorsefully judgemental

    Financial Times
  • A pleasure to read... No word is wasted, and the casual-looking sentences create the impression that we are overhearing what is being said

  • Enthralling...Isherwood...struggles with his demons in spare, luminous and merciless prose

    Benjamin Evans, Sunday Telegraph
