About this book

Introduction

This volume of interviews and recollections offers a kaleidoscopic view of E.M. Forster's character as observed and remembered by college associates, close friends, chance acquaintances and fellow writers. These forty-six pieces, some published here for the first time, variously reveal facets of his private and public personalities: Forster the subtle analyst of middle-class England, the spokesman for liberal causes and humane values, the Cambridge insider and the committed friend.
