ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the book "The World in the Evening," by Christopher Isherwood. In this novel, the time is 1941-42, and though the demolition squad has lighted all its fuses, the detonations smack of movie track sound effects. The narrator Stephen Monk, is, first of all, in America, three thousand miles away from the mess. Monk is concerned less with politics than with self discovery. Homosexuality is proposed more explicitly than in any of the earlier novels as an honest, passionate relationship between men of strong character.
