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.

    " 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. "

    " Wonderfully self-absorbed. "
