    " Great except for some terribly uncomfortable and racist remark. They were few and far between but it that really sour it. "

    " 'Christopher and his Kind' is a book that I would normally stay clear from, for it is an autobiography and most of the time autobiographies annoy me. But 'Christopher and his Kind' was an interesting read. As someone who has lived abroad, I felt I could connect to a lot of things in the book. "

    " I read and reviewed Christopher And His Kind after it was first published some thirty-five years ago. It remains a seminal memoir for anyone interested in the 1930's, in English literature, in queer literature, and in what really happened in Isherwood's Berlin stories. "
