A Passage to India by E.M. Forster
Rate this book
Clear rating
Excellent book. I am honestly shocked how low this book is rated. It's one of the most incisive books on colonial relationships that I have read. There's a caveat: this is clearly from the viewpoint of the colonizer but you can feel Forster grappling ...more
