There's a new biography of Christopher Isherwood. See this link for a nice long review article in LAWeekly.

The book: Isherwood: A Life Revealed by Peter Parker, a "massive 832-page, 12-years-in-the-making tome intended as a more or less definitive study."

The reviewer says "Isherwood emerges as clearly the most fascinating and arguably the most important cultural figure of modern times whose importance continues to grow. And in George W. Bush’s America, whose gay community Isherwood did so much to inspire, a struggle against a powerful coven of "moral" posturers makes his living and working example more vital than ever. ... While not designed for readers unfamiliar with Isherwood’s work, Life Revealed isn’t a dust-dry academic exercise. It’s a lively, if complex, read."
