E. M. Forster’s homosexuality was the central fact of his life. Between Wilde’s imprisonment and the Stonewall riots, Forster led a long, strange, and imaginative life as a gay man. He preserved a vast archive of his private life - a history of gay experience he believed would find its audience in a happier time. Seeing Forster’s life through the lens of his sexuality, Wendy Moffat’s biography offers us a dramatic new view - revealing his astuteness as a social critic, his political bravery, and his prophetic vision of gay intimacy. E.M. Forster: A New Life casts fresh light on one of the most beloved writers of the 20th century.

I found it very difficult to get a feel for the book as it was so badly narrated.
I am sure there were many but I found it too difficult to wade through the appalling pronunciation and lack of tone/vocal inflection of the narrator.
The book would have been more absorbing if there had been more interest in the voice of the narrator. He did not pronounce some of the words properly and quite often I had to listen to the sentence again to work out what he was saying.
I would love to hear the book again but being narrated by someone who enjoys reading and conveying to others his/her interest in the text.
