Book Review: A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood


A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood
Rating: 4/5

The novel follows a day in the life of George, a middle-aged gay English Professor in California. Throughout his pretty mundane day we gain insight on his view of life and see how he's dealing with the recent death of his young lover Jim.

I found the novel at times very funny and insightful on the world in the 1960s.

While reading this novel I couldn't help feeling that I was reading the more adult version of The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. George's inner thoughts seem to echo some of the same thoughts of Holden Caulfield which I thought was interesting.

A quick read that I think most people would enjoy.

In 2009, Tom Ford (the fashion designer) turned the novel into a feature film starring Colin Firth as George. I haven't seen it yet but it's in my Netflix queue! Watch the trailer below:
