Descripción Virago Upstarts, London, 1987. Trade Paperback. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: No Dust Jacket. Illustrated by Cover art by Farida Zaman Ilustrador. First Edition; First Printing. Light tone, slight wear. Crisp trade paperback. New old stock of this literary scandal. ; A collection of twelve stories, ostensibly by a British Asian woman, discovered to have been written by a Church of England vicar. Virago is said to have pulped the remaining stock of the book. "Virago felt it necessary to stand by its purely literary judgment, namely that the stories were written "with hard- eyed realism and poignant simplicity"—it had to do so, or it would justly have been accused of applying double standards to work by Asian women and white men, which would have revealed a frankly racist condescension. But Virago decided that politics in this instance was the better part of literature, and was more important, indeed, than whether the book had anything worthwhile or important to say. It therefore refused to sell any more copies of the offending work." - Theodore Dalrymple, The Criterion, May 2005. "By masquerading as 'Rahila Khan', who is both female and Asian, Forward collided with the two most sacred cows of identity politics: gender and race." - K K Ruthven, Faking Literature. A crisp, never sold copy of this uncommon, thought-provoking work.; 100 pages. Nº de ref. de la librería BOOKS002658I

Descripción London: Virago, 1987. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. Collection of "twelve haunting stories about Asian girls and white boys," written under a pseudonym by a Church of England vicar. When Virago discovered the deception, it reportedly pulped its remaining copies of the book. An uncommon title and an uncomfortable symbol of the mid-'80s PC wars. Forward has gone on to write more than twenty books, mostly for children. 100 pages. Nº de ref. de la librería 0635
