The Memorial

ISHERWOOD, Christopher

ISHERWOOD, Christopher The Memorial

Hogarth Press, 1932.

First edition. Original red and white coarsely woven cloth with blue titles, in the original pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy in a very near fine dustwrapper which is very crisp, with just a shade of fading to the spine and a very light ring mark to the upper cover.

As with most of Isherwood's novels, The Memorial is heavily autobiographical. The book opens in the Scrivens' Chelsea mews house with Mary Scriven organising musical concerts with the help of Eric (largely based on Isherwood), who, oppressed by his own mother Lily (Isherwood's mother, Kathleen), comes to regard Mary as a mother figure, as he and his generation struggle to come to terms with the aftermath of the Great War.
