June 9, 1958

A good – because psychologically true – Hollywood story. A maid boasts to her friend – also a maid – about the house she works at: wonderful people – they entertain every night – and always big celebrities, top stars.  The friend is thrilled.  “And what do they talk about?”  The maid:  “Us.”

Christopher Isherwood, Diaries, Volume One:  1939-1960, edited and introduced by Kathleen Bucknell, London, Methuen London, 1996.
