Our Thoughts

Isherwood’s final novel is diminished by tiresome expositions on Eastern mysticism. Yet there are glimmers of greatness as he returns to characteristic concerns: the struggle between goodness and the ego, the constraints and conservatism of England, and the incompatibility of erotic love and spiritualism.
