Journey to the border by Edward Upward( Book )

Edward Upward's acclaimed and partly autobiographical novel was originally published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press in 1938. It relates 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

"The Rotten Elements were serious deviants from the British Communist Party's official line in the later 1940s. In this 'novel of fact' -- the second part of a trilogy that began with In the Thirties (also in Penguin) -- Edward Upward examines not only the deep undercurrents of thought in the party at the time, but also seeks to discover the real identity of the rotten elements."--Cover p. [4]

An unmentionable man by Edward Upward( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first four of these new short stories by Edward Upward, now in his 91st year, form a closely linked sequence - almost a single story - and could be described as 'realistic dreams'. They are vivid and often satirical, the product of long experience, but are neither cynical nor finally pessimistic. In certain inherited ways they resemble Upward's earlier fantasies 'The Railway Accident' and Journey to the Border, both also published by Enitharmon. Of the last two stories, 'Fred and Lil' is straightforwardly realistic and humanly sympathetic, while 'With Alan to the Fair' deals with love, hate and political extremism in serious and in highly comical episodes
