    Banished by bad decisions to spend the summer with his great-grandmother, Liam Peters thinks his life is over. After all, Marty Peters is a tough woman to be around. Maybe she wouldn't be so bad if she'd just take an interest in the modern technology he loves. Sure, she has some insight to her...but the woman is practically "pushing daisies". Not surprisingly, as tornado sirens announce a city-wide emergency, Liam discovers why that term should be avoided...well...like the plague.

    Christopher and His Kind covers the most memorable 10 years in the writer's life, from 1929, when Isherwood left England to spend a week in Berlin and decided to stay there indefinitely, to 1939, when he arrived in America. When the book was published in 1976, readers were deeply impressed by the courageous candor with which he describes his life in gay Berlin of the 1930s and his struggles to save his companion, Heinz, from the Nazis.

    Jacob Ericson, a shy, enigmatic, and somewhat inept ranch hand learns that his hands possess the mysterious gift of healing: a gift he uses to cure animals and Sharon, the woman he adores. His gift is quickly exploited and the boundaries of his charm and naïveté begin to stretch. Following Sharon to Los Angeles, Jacob offers his healing powers for free at a church in Los Angeles, and then at a seedy stage show where his beloved Sharon also works.

    Isherwood's story centers on the production of the vacuous fictional melodrama Prater Violet, set in 19th-century Vienna, providing ironic counterpoint to tragic events as Hitler annexes the real Vienna of the 1930s. The novel features the vivid portraits of imperious, passionate, and witty Austrian director Friedrich Bergmann and his disciple, a genial young screenwriter: the fictionalized Christopher Isherwood.

    No one would argue that gay men and women continue to face the kind of discrimination they did back in 1968, when Mart Crowley’s “The Boys in the Band” cracked open the closet door onstage, shining a stark light on what was then a topic rarely explored in popular culture.

    "A New Day for Gay Plays?" is from the December 29, 2016 Entertainment section of The New York Times. It was written by Charles Isherwood and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.

    Ein melancholischer Abgesang auf eine verlorene Welt: Kosmopolitisch, libertin, glamourös und dekadent - mit fotografischer Präzision erfasst Christopher Isherwood die letzten Tage der Weimarer Republik in Berlin und zeichnet unvergessliche Porträts der Menschen, die seinen Weg kreuzen und unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten: Zwei junge Männer, die in fataler Weise voneinander abhängen, eine vermögende jüdische Familie, die das nahende Unglück nicht wahrhaben will, und zahlreiche Mitglieder der Halbwelt, unter ihnen die hinreißend leichtsinnige Sally Bowles, die in der Literatur ihresgleichen sucht.
