Christopher Isherwood’s letter with references to The Berlin Stories and other works.

In his letter, Isherwood thanks Martin Cuiper the photographs of The Berlin Stories-scenes and recalls his memories of his 1952 visit to Berlin: what has remained of Nollendorfstrasse 17 (Isherwood’s Berlin-address) and the Cosy Corner (the model of Alexander Casino in Goodbye to Berlin); reports about his then-current work My Guru and His Disciple, and writes about his plan writing a book on Igor Stravinsky and David Hockney.

The letter was bound into Isherwood’s autobiographical novel dealing with the Berlin-period, “Christopher and His Kind”.

Christopher Isherwood (1904–1986) was an Anglo-American novelist living in Berlin between 1929 and 1933. This period inspired two of his major novels Goodbye to Berlin and Mr Norris Changes Train which were later published as The Berlin Stories and adapted into a Broadway musical and the Oscar-winning film Cabaret.
