The rediscovery of Edward Upward’s work excited enthusiastic comment among reviewers and readers when in 1994 Enitharmon published The Mortmere Stories, An Unmentionable Man and a revised version of Journey to the Border. The five short stories in this new volume, all written in recent years, reconfirm what Edward Mendelson in the Times Literary Supplement has described as Upward’s ‘unique perfected style . . . that gives ordinary events a hallucinatory strangeness and renders dreams as if they were entirely ordinary, subject to the same ethical and political judgements appropriate to the daylight world.’
