'Wendy Moffat's re-examination of E. M. Forster identifies his homosexuality as being the essence of his creative life. Using unpublished writings, she charts his gradual awakening to the moral, intellectual and emotional significance of his homo-erotic imagination. Her book is an astute and original new portrait of this major novelist.' Michael Holroyd 'A bold new re-imagining of Forster's long career, which makes some striking connections between his life and work' D. J. Taylor
