FORSTER, E.M. The Life to Come and other stories. London : Edward Arnold, (1972). First Edition. Pp. (6),vii-xxi,(1),1-240,(2). 8vo, black cloth, gilttitles to spine. The Abinger Edition of E.M. Forster Volume 8, edited by O liver Stallybrass. "The fourteen stories in this book span six decades - from 1903 to 1957 or even later - and represent every phase of Forster's career as a writer. Only two have ever been published, and these only in magazines to wnich few people have easy access. Two very different reasons causedthe other twelve to remain unpublished in Forster's lifetime. One was his diffidence, which in his earlier years led him to belittle work that had failed to find immediate acceptance. There are four such stories in this volume, and it is hard, today, to understand why they were rejected by the sameeditors who were pubiishmg his other early work. The remaining stories wer e debarred from publication—far more forcibly than Maurice—by their overtlyhomosexual themes." - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 50.0 0
