Christopher William Bradshaw Isherwood was born in Wyberslegh Hall, High Lane, Cheshire, England. He was an English born American novelist, playwright and screenwriter. He deliberately failed his tripos and left Corpus Christi College, Cambridge without a degree in 1925. His first novel, All the Conspirators, appeared in 1928. Isherwood's second novel, The Memorial, was another story of conflict between mother and son, based closely on his own family history. He wrote the prose and Caskey took the photographs for a 1949 book about their journey entitled The Condor and the Cows. Down There on a Visit, a novel published in 1962, comprised four related stories that overlap the period covered in his Berlin stories.
