This is a 1953 reissue of Christopher Isherwood's literary autobiography, Lions and Shadows, the fascinating record of how a young man made himself into a writer, set in London in the twenties. Perhaps it would be more accurate to call Lions and Shadows an  autobiographical novel.  Isherwood is such a born storyteller that he may have been unable to resist the temptation to "improve" here or there on the facts.
