The Coming Day


Date: 2000
Format: Cloth-bound, Hardback
Pages: 151

This edition of The Coming Day is cloth-bound and signed by Upward.

These stories testify to Upward’s continuing creativity into his mid-nineties. They interweave elements from every period of his work: railway accidents and Kafkaesque dreams recall his earliest; concern for the survival of humanity maintains the left-wing commitment of his middle years; and the more contemplative note of the later writing now deepens with the theme of ageing, bereavement and death.

The precise observation and lucid dialogue of Upward’s fiction still makes a powerful impression.


Special signed editions are too valuable to send out via regular postage channels. We therefore use a courier to send them to you. We hope that you can appreciate why there will be an appropriate shipping charge to accommodate this.
