Christopher Isherwood Reads…

One of our beloved writers was Christopher Isherwood (1904 – 1986), and his many books and writings have spawned several well-known movies. “Goodbye to Berlin” became “Cabaret,” “A Single Man” became a movie in 2009, and there have been movies about him: “Chris & Don: A Love Story” (2008), and “Christopher and His Kind,” a BBC television film in 2010. The film “Chris & Don” celebrates his 33-year relationship with Don Bachardy, in which Isherwood was 30 years older.
There were several audio recordings released of him reading his work, but probably the most assessable to most would be an album from 1976, called “Christopher Isherwood Reads…” which includes selections from “Goodbye to Berlin (Sally Bowles),” “A Single Man,” and “A Visit to Anselm Oakes.” These selections can be heard on the following page of my website.
