More About A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood
 
 
 
Overview

Welcome to sunny suburban 1960s Southern California. George is a gay middle-aged English professor, adjusting to solitude after the tragic death of his young partner. He is determined to persist in the routines of his former life. "A Single Man "follows him over the course of an ordinary twenty-four hours. Behind his British reserve, tides of grief, rage, and loneliness surge but what is revealed is a man who loves being alive despite all the everyday injustices.

When Christopher Isherwood's "A Single Man "first appeared, it shocked many with its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in maturity. Isherwood's favorite of his own novels, it now stands as a classic lyric meditation on life as an outsider."
