From Christopher Isherwood, Christopher and His Kind:
The Memorial was published on February 17, 1932. There were a few really favorable notices. The best of them was in the Granta. I remember how one reviewer remarked that he had at first thought the novel contained a disproportionately large number of homosexual characters but had decided, on further reflection, that there were a lot more homosexuals about, nowadays.
Incidentally, naïve question: who are Christopher’s “kind”? Gay men? Expats? Literary types? None of the above? By “his kind,” does he mean “people like him,” or “people whom he fancies”?
The third-person POV in this book is awfully interesting. I’m trying to figure out what I make of it.
