A Single Man Summary


A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood

In this brilliantly perceptive novel, a middle aged professor living in California is alienated from his students by differences in age and nationality, and from the rest of society by his homosexuality. Isherwood explores the depths of the human soul and its ability to triumph over loneliness, alienation and loss.

He created the character of Sally Bowles, later made famous as the heroine of the musical Cabaret.
