A Single Man
to Anselm Oakes (30:53)
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 their 33-year relationship,
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."
