Review:

"Isherwood has decided to come out of the closet and proclaim his homosexuality, albeit in a detached third person manner, through these revisionist memoirs of his travels across Europe in the 1930's with fellow gay blades W. H. Auden and E. M. Forster, among others. While some of the social comments and depictions of noted individuals offer a modicum of general interest, most of the book is merely a more complete accounting of who did what to whom and where. Boys were always Isherwood's central passion, and even unto manhood he has maintained a boyish silliness and an unfortunate reverence for the ephemeral." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
