A single man by Christopher Isherwood( Book )

161 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When A Single Man was originally published, it shocked many by its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in midlife. George, the protagonist, is adjusting to life on his own after the sudden death of his partner, and determines to persist in the routines of his daily life: the course of A Single Man spans twenty-four hours in an ordinary day. An Englishman and a professor living in suburban Southern California, he is an outsider in every way, and his internal reflections and interactions with others reveal a man who loves being alive despite everyday injustices and loneliness. Wry, suddenly manic, constantly funny, surprisingly sad, this novel catches the texture of life itself. -- Publisher description

Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood( Book )

310 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 16 languages and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1934, Goodbye to Berlin has been popularized on stage and screen by Julie Harris in I Am a Camera and Liza Minelli in Cabaret. Isherwood magnificently captures 1931 Berlin: charming, with its avenues and cafés; marvelously grotesque, with its nightlife and dreamers; dangerous, with its vice and intrigue; powerful and seedy, with its mobs and millionaires ? this was the period when Hitler was beginning his move to power. Goodbye to Berlin is inhabited by a wealth of characters: the unforgettable and ?divinely decadent? Sally Bowles; plump Fraulein Schroeder, who considers reducing her Buste to relieve her heart palpitations; Peter and Otto, a gay couple struggling to come to terms with their relationship; and the distinguished and doomed Jewish family, the Landauers."--back cover
Prater Violet by Christopher Isherwood( Book )

148 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prater Violet is... about the film industry. It centres around the production of the vacuous fictional melodrama Prater Violet, set in nineteenth-century Vienna, providing ironic counterpoint to tragic events as Hitler annexes the real Vienna of the 1930s. The novel features the vivid portraits of imperious, passionate, and witty Austrian director Friedrich Bergmann and his disciple, a genial young screenwriter - the fictionalised Christopher Isherwood.'--Publisher description

"A bemused, sometimes acid portrait of people caught in private sexual hells of their own making. Four episodes are connected by four narrators, all of who are called "Christopher Isherwood." Yet each is a different character inhabiting a new setting; Berlin in 1928, the Greek Isles in 1933, London in 1938, and California in 1940"--Page 4 of cover

"Two English brothers meet, after a long separation, in India. Oliver, the idealistic younger brother, prepares to take his final vows as a Hindu monk. Patrick, a successful publisher with a wife and children in London and a male lover in California, has publicly admired his brother's convictions while privately criticizing his choices. First published in 1967, A Meeting by the River delicately depicts the complexity of sibling relationships - the resentment and competitiveness as well as the love and respect."--Jacket
