(4), v-ix,(3),13-184. 8vo, pale blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "'Whereare the young writers of today?' is a question which has been asked, no do ubt, all through the ages. But it has a special point just now, when publishing difficulties and the shortage of literary magazines make it so hard for the young writer to achieve print at all. Introduced by that doyen of English novelists and Cambridge writers, E.M. Forster, this volume contains essays and short stories written by Cambridge undergraduates during the last two years. They are, as Mr Forster says, 'completely written and intelligent and sensitive', marked by 'a peculiar poetry, the poetry of disquiet, thepoetry of the sum that won't add up.'" - from the dust jacket.
