Edward Upward’s acclaimed and partly autobiographical novel – printed here in a newly revised version – was originally published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press in 1938. It relates to the growing disillusionment of a politically-committed tutor who is attached to the household of a philistine and reactionary country gentleman. His revulsion at the behaviour of his employers and their friends leads him to the brink of madness, from which he is saved only by his resolve to contribute to the movement for social revolution.

Stephen Spender, in his enthusiastic introduction, applauds Upward’s achievement, describing him as ‘a visionary of wonderful language and extraordinary power.’
