A Passage to India (Abinger Edition of E.M. Forster) by E. M. Forster

By E. M. Forster

Among the best novels of the 20th century and the foundation for director David Lean’s Academy Award-winning movie, A Passage to India tells of the conflict of cultures in British India after the flip of the century. In beautiful prose, Forster finds the threat that lurks simply underneath the skin of standard existence, as a standard false impression erupts right into a devastating affair.
