2654 All the Conspirators A novel by Christopher Isherwood (read 2 Oct 1994) This was published in 1928, when Isherwood was 24. It tells of Philip, an angry son in revolt against his mother. Philip wants to write and paint and his mother thinks he should work. He gets sick, and his mother and sister wait on him hand and foot. In 1958 Isherwood referred to the book's "naive attempts at a James Joyce thought-stream, its aping of the mannerisms of Stephen Dedalus, its quaint echoes of Virginia Woolf, its jerky flashback narration crudely imitated from E. M. Forster." Since I was on his mother's side, and the book's protagonist is Philip, the book missed its mark with me. ( )
