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.
