Most readings of Isherwood’s work tend to gloss over the writing 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).
