Amazingly exhaustive biography of the writer, but nothing drags.You will be amazed how fast this reads. Good illustrations.
Noel Hourican
Reasonably well written biography that struggled to make interesting a subject that I eventually (and disappointedly) found to be somewhat dull. I was drawn to the biography by my admiration for the Berlin novels but would suggest that this would be insufficient to retain the interest of readers that are not fans of Isherwood's later work.
