"A pioneer celebration in spring around a newly-built farmhouse in the Pennsylvania hills in the early part of the last century. The bride-to-be and the young farmer-husband enact the emotions, joyful and apprehensive, their new domestic partnership invites. An older neighbor suggests now and then the rocky confidence of experience. A revivalist and his followers remind the new householders of the strange and terrible aspects of human fate. At the end, the couple are left quiet and strong in their new house."--Summarized by Edwin Denby (Copland's librettist for the 1937 high school opera The Second Hurricane) and as reported of the New York premiere in the Herald Tribune of May 15, 1945

"This memoir 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. The author describes his life in gay Berlin of the 1930s and his struggles to save his companiion, a German man named Heinz, from the Nazis. An engrossing and dramatic story and a fascinating glimpse into a little-known world, this book remains one of Isherwood's greatest achievements."
