A legendary figure among the Auden generation of young writers in the 1930s, Edward Upward is still writing to this day. This new selection of his best short stories spans a literary career of almost eight decades and is being published to celebrate his centenary. Beginning in 1928 with the fantastical world of Mortmere in The Railway Accident, the stories continue through the era of political engagement in the Thirties to the reflective and poignant studies of old age that have underpinned his revival in the past decade. Together they represent a lifetime of achievement in modern literature. Book jacket.
