Celebrated as a masterpiece from its first publication, A Single Man is the story of George, an English professor in suburban California left heartbroken after the death of his lover, Jim. With devastating clarity and humour, Christopher Isherwood shows George's determination to carry on, evoking the unexpected pleasures of life as well as the soul's ability to triumph over loneliness and alienation.

Review:

"The best prose writer in English" (Gore Vidal)

"A virtuoso piece of work...courageous...powerful" (Sunday Times)

"His key post-war work. A quarter-century ahead of its time in its portrayal of a quotidian homosexual life, it inspired a generation of gay writers in Britain and the US" (Independent)

"Lyrical and intensely moving" (Daily Telegraph)

"A testimony to Isherwood's undiminished brilliance as a novelist" (Anthony Burgess)

From the Publisher:

A Single Man is an exclusive Vintage Classic that has been made into a film starring Julianne Moore and Colin Firth and directed by Tom Ford.
