Christopher Isherwood

Christopher William Bradshaw Isherwood (August 26, 1904 - January 4, 1986), Anglo-American novelist, was born at Disley, Cheshire in the north west of England, the son of an army officer who was killed in the First World War.

At school he met W. H. Auden who became his lifelong companion.

He went to Germany as a private tutor and wrote The Berlin Stories: Mr. Norris Changes Trains and Goodbye to Berlin which provided the inspiration for the play I Am A Camera and subsequently the musical Cabaret.

Auden and Isherwood emigrated first to China, then to California. Isherwood died in Santa Monica.
