Christopher Isherwood was never a big name British writer like his contemporaries Graham Greene, W. H. Auden, or even Harold Pinter. In fact, if he was alive today Isherwood would probably consider himself an Angelino though and through. Isherwood lived in Los Angeles for most of his professional writing career, and the City of Angels inspired some of the novelist's most acclaimed works, including A Single Man, which was recently adapted into a an Academy Award nominated feature film by fashion designer Tom Ford. Isherwood loved LA and to celebrate the release of Christopher Isherwood's The '60s: Diaries: 1960-1969, Zócalo will host a panel of Isherwood's longtime companion Don Bachardy, Isherwood Foundation executive director James White, and Huntington Library curator of manuscripts Sara Hodson, to discuss the author's life and work in Los Angeles.
