Selected Stories

Selected Stories - E.M. Forster Wonderful!The last book I read from E.M. Forster was Howards End (highly recommended) so that's the sort of thing I was prepared for here.As you would expect from Forster, the action arises naturally and inevitably from well-drawn characters, there is subtlety, intensity and emotional truth but there was also a big surprise in the range of the stories -- from pagan fantasies to allegories and science fiction!Many of the stories, scenes and characters have stayed with me and I often think about them.
