E.M. Forster : a biography by Nicola Beauman( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"E. M. Forster was one of the greatest novelists of the twentieth century, author of such acclaimed and much-loved books as A Room with a View, Howards End and A Passage to India. Yet in many ways his life has remained an enigma. Homosexual, deeply inhibited, a man who lived with his mother from the time he was born until her death when he was sixty-six, Forster nevertheless created a fictional world of abiding richness and fascination. It is this paradoxical relationship between Forster's life and his writings that Nicola Beauman explores here." "Born in 1879, Forster wrote his first novel in his mid-twenties, and by the time he was thirty-five had completed four more. Yet after he published his final novel ten years later, he never wrote another. Why Forster abandoned fiction, where the roots of his novels actually lay (among other discoveries, Nicola Beauman shows that Maurice, his posthumously published novel about homosexual love, was based on real events and real people), just how his experiences in India and Egypt and the suburbs of London shaped and colored his work - such are the issues that E.M. Forster brilliantly illuminates. It evokes Forster's lifelong obsession with houses, families and inherited traditions, and investigates the effects of his mother's stultifying grasp. And above all, it sympathetically examines, for the first time, the emotional and sexual frustrations that oppressed him well into middle age, and what they meant to his writing."--Jacket

Diary of a provincial lady by E. M Delafield( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a self-effacing, dry-witted tale of a long-suffering and disaster-prone Devon lady of the 1930s. The Provincial Lady has a nice house, a nice husband and nice children. In fact, maintaining niceness is the Provincial Lady's goal in life. She never raises her voice, rarely ventures outside Devon, only occasionally allows herself to become vexed by the ongoing servant problem, and would be truly appalled by the confessional mode that has gripped the late 20th century

The way things are by E. M Delafield( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laura has been married for seven years. On those occasions when an after-dinner snooze behind The Times seems preferable to her riveting conversation about their two small sons, Laura dismisses the notion that Alfred does not understand her, reflecting instead that they are what is called happily married. At thirty-four, Laura wonders if she's ever been in love - a ridiculous thing to ask oneself. Then Duke Ayland enters her life and that vexing question refuses to remain unanswered ...With Laura, beset by perplexing decisions about the supper menu, the difficulties of appeasing Nurse, and the necessity of maintaining face within the small village of Quinnerton, E.M. Delafield created her first "Provincial Lady". And in the poignancy of Laura's doubts about her marriage, she presents a dilemma which many women will recognise
