• "Isherwood has reinvented the spirit of devotion for the modern reader. If I had to propose a candidate for canonization, Isherwood - wry, self-conscious, scrupulously honest - would get my vote"

    Edmund White, New York Times
  • "A masterpiece of spiritual memoir"

    Los Angeles Times
  • "What emerges is a record of a religious adventure that would have delighted Kierkegaard... Isherwood rejects conventional piety - all the humdrum apparatus of worship - in favor of a direct, even jaunty appreciation of how preposterous, certainly precarious, spirituality can be today."

    New York Times
  • "The sacred and the profane collide like never before"

    Giles Foden, Conde Nast Traveller
