Best known for Goodbye to Berlin -- the inspiration for the Tony and Oscar award-winning musical Cabaret -- Christopher Isherwood has always been considered both a literary and a gay pioneer. That is truer now than ever. Readers of his plays, novels, and diaries continue to discover Isherwood's lasting contribution to twentieth-century culture, literature, autobiographical fiction, and memoir, to gay rights, and to twentieth-century culture.

In The Isherwood Century, editors James J. Berg and Chris Freeman have gathered twenty-four essays and interviews on Christopher Isherwood's life and work. The volume, the first of its kind on Isherwood, offers a fresh, in-depth view of the author, his literary legacy, and his continuing influence. Mixing critiques with personal reminiscences, The Isherwood Century includes an essay and drawings by artist Don Bachardy, Isherwood's longtime partner; recollections from celebrated authors Armistead Maupin and Edmund White; and moving memoirs by preeminent scholar Carolyn Heilbrun and noted poet Michael S. Harper. Two interviews are also published here for the first time: an interview with Isherwood conducted by Carola M. Kaplan in 1973 and Niladri Chatterjee's 1997 conversation with Don Bachardy.
