    (August 26, 1904-January 4, 1986)
    Born in High Lane, England, United Kingdom
    Best known for his Berlin stories, 'Mr. Norris Changes Trains' (1935) and 'Goodbye Berlin' (1939)
    Also wrote 'The Dog Beneath the Skin' (1935), 'Prater Violet' (1945), 'The World in the Evening' (1954), 'Down There on a Visit' (1962) and 'A Single Man' (1964)
    Became an American citizen (1945)
    He deliberately failed his final exams and left Cambridge without a degree.
    His Berlin stories are remembered less for their own literary merit than for inspiring the musical 'Cabaret.'
    W. H. Auden called him a 'repressed heterosexual.'
    At age 49, he began dating 18-year-old Don Bachardy.
    When he was 11, his father was killed in World War I.
    Gore Vidal called him 'The best prose writer in English.'
    He and Bachardy were together for over 30 years until Isherwood's death.
    He met Bachardy on Valentine's Day. (How romantic!)
