Christopher and His Kind covers the most memorable ten years in the writer's life from 1929, when Isherwood left England to spend a week in Berlin and decided to stay there indefinitely, to 1939, when he arrived in America. When the book was published in 1976, readers were deeply impressed by the courageous candor with which he describes his life in gay Berlin of the 1930s and his struggles to save his companion, Heinz, from the Nazis. An engrossing and dramatic story and a fascinating glimpse into a little-known world, Christopher and His Kind remains a classic in gay liberation literature and one of Isherwood's greatest achievements.

Checked this out to test the process for downloadable audio offerings, and still find myself surprised at the luck of the choice. I wasn't familiar with Isherwood before, other than having seen Cabaret once. I found the honesty here startling, not with revelations of shocking content, but with such frankness about the interplay of his other works and his actual biography.
