Passage to India by E. M. Forster Passage to India, Paperback (August 2015)

When Adela Quested and her elderly companion Mrs Moore arrive in the Indian town of Chandrapore, they quickly feel trapped by its insular and prejudiced 'Anglo-Indian' community. Determined to escape the parochial English enclave and explore the 'real India', they seek the guidance of the charming and mercurial Dr Aziz, a cultivated Indian Muslim.

Alexandria by E. M. Forster Alexandria, Paperback (February 2014)

With a novelist's pen, Forster brings to life the fabled, romantic city of Alexander the Great, capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt, beacon of light and culture symbolised by the Pharos, where the doomed love affair of Antony and Cleopatra was played out and the greatest library the world has ever known was built.

Room with a View by E. M. Forster Room with a View, Paperback (September 2012)

Lucy has her rigid, middle-class life mapped out for her until she visits Florence with her uptight cousin Charlotte, and finds her neatly ordered existence thrown off balance. Lucy finds herself torn between the intensity of life in Italy and the repressed morals of Edwardian England, personified in her terminally dull fiance Cecil Vyse.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » One of the finest books by a Westerner to explore the nature of racism, this is a useful antidote to some of the romanticism about the British Raj. The abiding mystery of what really happened in the Marabar Caves (assault or not) provides modern literature with one of its strongest central episodes. The human emotions dealt with here are such perennials that they transcend the British Raj setting and are felt as powerfully today in all their awkwardness, embarrassment and tenderness. The inter-racial friendship that Forster describes was ahead of its time and only too aware of it. But this is not only a brilliant portrayal of colonialism but also a subtle portrait of the psychological effects on a highly wrought mind of an incomprehensible environment. (Kirkus UK)
