First line from book:

Review: This compact but highly readable biography is a fantastic introduction to E.M. Forster. Canning writes candidly about Forster's homosexuality and the impact being closeted had on Forster's fiction. Best for someone who's read a little Forster, this is still an enjoyable bio for anyone curious about writers, English colonial history, or BGLTQ history.
