From terms of address in The Animals: Love Letters Between Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy, edited by Katherine Bucknell, published last month by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Isherwood met Bachardy, a portrait artist, in 1953, when he was forty-eight and Bachardy was eighteen. They remained partners until Isherwood’s death, in 1986.
