A classic novel, irresistibly repackaged.

Dr Aziz is a young Muslim physician in the British Indian town of Chandrapore. One evening he comes across an English woman, Mrs Moore, in the courtyard of a local mosque; she and her younger travelling companion Adela are disappointed by claustrophobic British colonial culture and wish to see something of the ‘real’ India. But when Aziz kindly offers to take them on a tour of the Marabar caves with his close friend Cyril Fielding, the trip results in a shocking accusation that throws Chandrapore into a fever of racial tension.

About The Author

Edward Morgan Forster was born in London in 1879, attended Tonbridge School and went on to King’s College, Cambridge in 1897, where he retained a lifelong connection and was elected to an Honorary Fellowship in 1946.

Forster wrote six novels. Where Angels Fear to Tread ’1905′ The Longest Journey ’1907′, A Room with a View ’1908′ and Howards End ’1910′ were all published before the First World War. Fourteen years passed before the publication of Forster`s most famous work, A Passage to India, in 1924. Maurice, his novel on a homosexual theme, which he competed in 1914, was published posthumously in 1971. His other works include essays, biographies, short stories, plays and a critical work, Aspects of the Novel, as the libretto for Britten’s opera Billy Budd.

E.M. Forster died in June 1970.
