The Mortmere stories by Christopher Isherwood( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Cambridge undergraduates in the mid-1920s, Christopher Isherwood and his old schoolfriend Edward Upward engaged in a literary attack on the dons and the 'poshocracy' - the fashionable and well-heeled students - by creating the bizarre fictional world of Mortmere, a village inhabited by surreal characters modelled on their Cambridge friends and acquaintances. The rector, Casmir Welken, resembles a 'diseased goat' and breeds angels in the church belfry; his sidekick Ronald Gunball is a dipsomaniac and an unashamed vulgarian; Sergeant Claptree, assisted by Ensign Battersea, keeps the Skull and Trumpet Inn; the mannish Miss Belmare, domineering and well starched, is sister to the squire, and Gustave Shreeve is headmaster of Frisbald College for boys. There are engrossing accounts of the writing of the Mortmere stories in Isherwood's Lions and Shadows and in Upward's No Home but the Struggle, but the stories have never before been published - with the one exception of Upward's 'The Railway Accident'
Journey to the border by Edward Upward( Book )

18 editions published between 1938 and 2005 in English and German and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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: a novel of fact by Edward Upward( Book )

12 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 144 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
