A pivotal book in Isherwood's career that reveals as much about him as the parents he set out to portray Kathleen and Frank is the story of Christopher Isherwood's parents-their meeting in 1895, marriage in 1903 after his father had returned from the Boer War, and his father's death in an assault on Ypres in 1915, which left his mother a widow until her own death in 1960. As well as a family memoir, it is a social history of a period of striking change, and a portrait of the world that shaped Isherwood and that he rejected.
