Homesick for everywhere but here

Norman Geras asked me to write about a book that has influenced me in some way for his Writer’s Choice series on normblog, according to the Sunday Times one of Britain’s finest 100 blogs. I chose Christopher Isherwood’s second novel, The Memorial, written immediately before the Berlin novels that made his name. Isherwood’s pretty much out of fashion these days and I’ve had some harsh things to say about some of his later diaries myself, but I love this novel, and I wish it were more widely known. You can read why here.
