Beschrijving

‘An absolutely devastating, unnerving, brilliant book’ – Stephen Spender

‘He had dazzling talents as a writer. His literary production was pre-eminent for its wit, humour, charm of style and narrative skill… A Single Man  can be considered as his masterpiece’ – John Lehmann, Guardian

In this brilliantly perceptive novel, a middle-aged professor living in California is alienated from his students by differences in age and nationality, and from the rest of society by his homosexuality. Isherwoord explores the depths of the human soul and its ability to triumph over loneliness, alienation and loss.

‘He strikes a note of great intimacy with the reader as if with a close personal friend, and a sense of total honesty is sought. This style – witty, observant, nostalgic, exact – was Isherwood’s great contribution to modern literature’ – Financial Times

‘Very sad and yet at times wildly funny’ – Daily Telegraph
