Abstract:
Collection contains letters from Christopher Isherwood to his brother, Richard Isherwood, and his mother, Kathleen Machell Smith Isherwood. The letters describe his life in America, his efforts to become a United States citizen, and his involvement with Indian Vedanta philosophy and the Swāmi Prabhavananda. Many letters discuss his work writing articles, screenplays and books, especially the autobiographical "Kathleen and Frank." The letters also mention several of his friends, including E. M. Forster, Felix Greene, Aldous Huxley and Peggy Kiskadden. Also included is a letter from Isherwood's companion Don Bachardy to Richard Isherwood with a note from Christopher, and two letters to Christopher Isherwood from family acquaintances concerning family history.
