Martinus, you could try for instance the book "E.M. Forster posthumous fiction" by Norman Page (1977) - this is a small but interesting book covering the posthumous stories (including The Life to Come) and 'Maurice'. For a more detailed and more intricate study I can recommend 'Queer Forster' edited by Robert K. Martin and George Piggford (1997), which also includes The Life to Come. Biographies are always a good idea - they usually contain interesting details on an author's work as well. Good luck!
