“Intimate and compulsively readable.” —Alfred Corn, The Nation

The second volume of acclaimed author Christopher Isherwood’s diaries takes readers to the heart of the 1960s, the decade in which Isherwood’s semiautobiographical novel Goodbye to Berlin would be adapted into the Tony Award-winning musical Cabaret. Against a background of cultural paradigm shifts including the advent of space travel, pop art, and mod fashion, and seminal events like the Kennedy/Nixon election, the Marianne Faithfull/Mick Jagger romance, the rise of the Hippie movement, and the riotous explosion of America’s inner cities, The Sixties follows Isherwood’s friendships with creative powerhouses such as Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Richard Burton, and Gore Vidal, and continues the saga of his great romance with portraitist Don Bachardy.

Christopher Isherwood (1904–1986) was one of the most prominent writers of his generation. He is the author of many works of fiction, includingAll the Conspirators,The Memorial,Mr. Norris Changes Trains, andGoodbye to Berlin, on which the musicalCabaretwas based, as well as works of nonfiction and biography.
