Born in 1903, Edward Upward was a member of the celebrated Auden generation of young poets and novelists. This selection of twelve 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 (Christopher Isherwood and Upward both wrote tales about this place while they were at Cambridge together) in ""The Railway Accident,"" the stories continue through the era of political engagement in the 30s to the reflective and poignant studies of old age that have underpinned a recent revival. Together, they represent a lifetime of achievement in modern literature. Edward Upward's first novel was published in 1938 by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press.

About the Author:

Edward Upward (1903-2009) was the last of the "Auden generation." While at Cambridge, he created with Christopher Isherwood a series of stories about the fictitious village of Mortmere. After graduating he was a private tutor and for thirty years a schoolmaster, until his retirement in 1961. His first novel, Journey to the Border, was published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press in 1938 and between 1962 and 1977 Heinemann published his trilogy The Spiral Ascent. Upward's The Railway Accident and Other Stories was a Penguin Classic. Enitharmon has been Upward's exclusive publisher from 1994, issuing a series of critically acclaimed stories as well as memoirs of Isherwood and Auden. Edward Upward died in 2009, at the age of 105 years.
