In October, the Evening and Afternoon Village Literary Clubs will read E.M. Forster’s
novel A Passage to India (1924, 361 pp). If you’ve never read Forster’s great novel,
this is your opportunity; if you have read it, you probably know that you want to
read it again. This is not the Forster of A Room of One’s Own and Howard’s End.
This is a book about cultural collision, about imperialism, racism, and insularity,
but also, like Forster’s other novels, about friendship and old age. Through deep
and complex characters, and a mysterious plot, Forster dramatically illustrates the
challenge of East/West understanding. Although A Passage of India, was written in
1924, it feels “eerily relevant." As one critic notes: “Forster was years ahead of
his time, and we ought to try to catch up with him."
