Library, Huntington. "Commemorating Christopher Isherwood." Huntington Organization. 2000. (8 Jan. 2004) (prt. out 1-2).
The Huntington Organization writes short pieces about authors and artists. This work consisted of a short biography of Christopher Isherwood. It's brief and generalized about the many aspects of Isherwood's life. This source doesn't compare to any of my other sources that are more in depth and concise, so I decided not to use it. This reference is useful to those who know nothing about Christopher Isherwood, and would like to know just the main facts. .
Page, Norman. Auden and Isherwood: The Berlin Years. New York: St. Martin's Press, 1998.
Norman Page is a professor of Modern English Literature at the University of Nottingham. He focuses on the years that Isherwood and W.H. Auden spent in Berlin, from 1928 to 1933. This book tries to show the relationship between the events of the upcoming war with the experiences of Isherwood and Auden. Unlike Christopher Isherwood: A Personal Memoir, this book makes little reference to The Berlin Stories, and avoids relating Isherwood's experiences to his work. This book was written for those who want to experience a pre-war Berlin, and for those who want to see what kind of environment had an influence on Isherwood.
