Description: Christopher Isherwood settled in California in 1939 and spent the war years working in the Hollywood film studios, teaching English and converting to Hinduism. By the end of the war, he realized that he would never become a monk, and careened into a life of frantic socializing, increasing dissipation, anxiety, and eventually despair.

This is Isherwood's account, reconstructed nearly 30 years later, of his post-war experiences in Santa Monica, New York, and London. In these pages he details his sexual encounters and romantic relationships, unveiling a hidden and sometimes shocking way of life shared with his circle of friends -- many of them well-known writers, artists, actors, and film makers.

Lost Years is a surprising and important memoir that demonstrates Isherwood's determination to track down the most elusive aspects of his past in order to understand and accurately portray himself. It shows how he developed his private recollections into the unique mixture of personal mythology and social history that characterizes much of his best work.
