Auden emigrated together to the United States. These diaries, covering the period up to 1960, describe Isherwoods search for a new life in California, where he eventually settled. The diaries tell how Isherwood became a disciple of the Hindu monk Swami Prabhavananda- about his pacifism during World War II- about his work as a screenwriter in Hollywood and his friendships with such gifted artists and intellectuals as Garbo, Chaplin, Thomas Mann, Bertolt Brecht, Stravinsky, Aldous Huxley, Gielgud, Olivier, Richard Burton, and Charles Laughton, many of whom were é migré s like himself.Throughout this period, Isherwood continued to write novels and sustain his literary friendship with E.

M. Forster, Somerset Maugham, Gore Vidal, Tennessee Williams, and others. He turned to his diary several times a week to record jokes and gossip, observations about his adopted country, philosophy and mystical insights. In spare, luminous prose, he also revealed his most intimate and passionate relationships, particularly with Bill Caskey and later with the very young Don Bachardy.
