'His great book ... masterly in its prescience and its lucidity' ANITA DESAI

A compelling portrait of a society in the grip of imperialism, A Passage to India depicts the fate of individuals caught in the great political and cultural conflicts of their age. It begins when Adela and her elderly companion Mrs Moore arrive in the Indian town of Chandrapore, and feel trapped by its insular and prejudiced British community. Determined to explore the 'real India', they seek the guidance of the charming and mercurial Dr Aziz. But a mysterious incident occurs while they are exploring the Marabar caves, and the well-respected doctor soon finds himself at the centre of a scandal.

Edited by OLIVER STALLYBRASS with an Introduction by PANKAJ MISHRA

“Yes and no...”

This was fairly hard work actually. I didn't like any of the characters and the subject was difficult and hard to sympathise with. E.M. Forster's writing is clearly very beautiful and the descriptions of... More
