This second volume of Christopher Isherwood's remarkable diaries opens on his fifty-sixth birthday, as the fifties give way to the decade of social and sexual revolution. Isherwood takes the reader from the bohemian sunshine of Southern California to a London finally swinging free of postwar gloom, to the racy cosmpolitanism of New York and to the raw Australian outback. he charts his ongoing quest for spiritual certainty under the guidance of his Hindu guru, and he reveals in reckless detail the emotional drama of his love for the American painter Don Bachardy, thrity years his junior and struggling to establish his own artistic identity. The diaries are crammed with wicked gossip and probing psychological insights about the cultural icons of the time - from Francis Bacon to Gore Vidal. But the diaries are most revealing about Isherwood himself - his fiction, his film writing, his college teaching, and his affairs of the heart. In the background run references to the political and historical events of the period. , i.e., the Vietnam War, the Summer of Love. An unparalleled chronicle with open-ended consequences. Glossary, Index. 756p.
