Christophananda Writes His Religion: Isherwood's Purgatory

he did between the Berlin stories and the last novels, steeped in his

responses to his encounter with Vedanta Hinduism. Yet, the fiction

of these years – mostly the fifties and early sixties – offers a great

deal to us if we wish to understand Isherwood’s major attempt at

resolving some of the problems of the religious novel, attempted

chiefly in A Meeting by the River (1967).
