9780099561194: Kathleen and Frank (Vintage Classics)

This is the story of Christopher Isherwood's parents - their meeting in 1895, marriage in 1903 after his father had returned from the Boer War, and his father's death in an assault on Ypres in 1915, which left his mother a widow until her own death in 1960. As well as a family memoir, it is a social history of a period of striking change, and a portrait of the world which shaped Isherwood and which he rejected.

Review:

"Shows a deeper understanding of much that he had once rebelled against" ( Guardian)

"A moving account of his parents' marriage based on their letters and diaries" ( Independent)

"A social history of the first half of the twentieth century and a study of artistic megalomania... Christopher writes about Christopher with fine, clear, cool precision" ( Spectator)

"There emerge from this book three remarkable characters, two highly edifying, one a writer of compelling talent" ( Catholic Herald)

Book Description:

First published in 1971, this is a key book in Isherwood's career revealing as much about him as the parents he set out to portray.
