Christopher Isherwood (1902–1986) was born in Manchester, England, and lived in Berlin from 1928 to 1933 and immigrated to the United States in 1939. A major figure in twentieth-century fiction and the gay rights movement, he wrote more than twenty books.
“In several respects this is probably Isherwood’s best novel. It offers the sheer pleasure of writing completely personal and yet completely controlled, radiant with observation, never wasting a word, funny and sympathetic.” —Stephen Spender, The New Republic
“This excellent novel may be the best Christopher Isherwood has written . . . A deeply intelligent and quietly compelling story.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Few writers have so unsparingly scrutinized their worlds. Down There on a Visit is outrageous, bitter, bleak, angry, wry, revealing, infuriating, and at times marvelously comic . . . An offbeat classic.” —Saturday Review
