Description
With the posthumous publication of his long-suppressed novel Maurice in 1970, E.M. Forster came out as homosexual—a revelation that made barely a ripple in the literary reputation of the man who wrote Howards End and A Passage to India. And yet, biographer Wendy Moffat argues, Forster's homosexuality was a central fact of his life (an era spanning Oscar Wilde's imprisonment and the Stonewall riots), and he preserved a vast personal archive, recording a history of gay experience he believed would find its audience in a happier time.

"None of [Forster's] biographers have had either the will or the wherewithal to concentrate as closely on Forster's sexuality as Wendy Moffat.... She offers an insightful, revelatory portrait of a man who deeply resented having to hide such an important side of himself.... Ms. Moffat's overarching interests are in tracing Forster's attitudes about sex and hypocrisy and in placing this increasingly outspoken figure within the context of his changing times."—NYTimes
