Christopher and his kind, 1929-1939 by Christopher Isherwood( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1,115 libraries worldwide
"This memoir covers the most memorable ten years in the writer's life- from 1929, when Isherwood left England to spend a week in Berlin and decided to stay there indefinitely, to 1939 when he arrived in America. The author describes his life in gay Berlin of the 1930s and his struggles to save his companiion, a German man named Heinz, from the Nazis. An engrossing and dramatic story and a fascinating glimpse into a little-known world, this book remains one of Isherwood's greatest achievements."
Down there on a visit by Christopher Isherwood( Book )
3 editions published between 1962 and 1978 in English and held by 886 libraries worldwide
"A bemused, sometimes acid portrait of people caught in private sexual hells of their own making. Four episodes are connected by four narrators, all of who are called "Christopher Isherwood." Yet each is a different character inhabiting a new setting; Berlin in 1928, the Greek Isles in 1933, London in 1938, and California in 1940"--Page 4 of cover

Stars in my eyes by Don Bachardy( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
"Stars in My Eyes is a collection of celebrity portraits. Internationally known artist Don Bachardy made portraits from life depicting the actors, writers, artists, composers, directors, and Hollywood elite that he and his partner Christopher Isherwood knew. He then made detailed notes about these portrait sittings in the journal he has kept for more than forty years. The result is a unique document: we enter the mind of the artist as he records the images and behavior of his celebrity subjects during their intense collaboration with him."--BOOK JACKET

The animals : letters between Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy by Christopher Isherwood( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
"Christopher Isherwood was a celebrated English writer when he met the Californian teenager Don Bachardy on a Santa Monica beach in 1952. They spent their first night together on Valentine's Day 1953. Defying the conventions, the two men began living as an openly gay couple in an otherwise closeted Hollywood. The Animals provides a loving testimony of an extraordinary relationship that lasted until Chris's death in 1986 - and survived affairs (on both sides) and a thirty-year-age-gap. In romantic letters to one another, the couple created the private world of the Animals. Chris was Dobbin, a stubborn old workhorse; Don was the playful young white cat, Kitty. But Don needed to carve out his own identity - some of their longest sequences of letters were exchanged during his trips to London and New York, to pursue his career as an artist and to widen his emotional and sexual horizons. Amidst the intimate domestic dramas, we learn of Isherwood's continuing literary success -the royalty cheques from Cabaret, the acclaim for his pioneering novel A Single Man - and the bohemian whirl of Californian film suppers and beach life. Don, whose portraits of London theatreland were making his name, attends the world premiere of The Innocents with Truman Capote and afterwards dines with Deborah Kerr and the rest of the cast, spends weekends with Tennessee Williams, Cecil Beton, or the Earl and Countess of Harewood, and tours Egypt and Greece with a new love interest. But whatever happens in the outside world, Dobbin and Kitty always return to their 'Basket' and to each other. Candid, gossipy, exceptionally affectionate, The Animals is a unique interplay between two creative spirits, confident in their mutual devotion."--Publisher's description
