The Condor and the Cows
First published in 1949, this is a lively memoir of Isherwood's South American travels
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY PICO IYER
In September 1947, long before mass tourism and with no knowledge of Spanish, Christopher Isherwood and William Caskey left for a six-month tour of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and Argentina. The Condor and the Cows is Isherwood’s unsentimental and wonderfully rich account of that journey, during which he bumped into a handful of old acquaintances on a brand-new continent.
