'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

A brilliant read

An extremely realistic novel that I had the pleasure as reading as part of my second year readings. It really highlighted social conflicts within the time, and made for heartbreaking experience.

A passage to india

Passage to India seems to be making a bigger statement than ever about racism and colonialism. The Indians are reflective and humorous as they discuss the difficulty in establishing friends with Englishmen, who lose their friendliness the longer they stay in India. This is a well written classical novel written by E.M. Forster
