A classic of modern fiction—teeming with the complexity, mystery, and menace that lurk when cultures collide.
Hailed as one of the finest novels of the twentieth century and transformed into an Academy Award-winning film, A Passage to India hauntingly evokes India at the peak of the British colonial era, complete with the racial tension that underscores every aspect of daily life. Into this setting, Forster introduces Adela Quested and Mrs. Moore, British visitors to Chandrapore who, despite their strong ties to the exclusive colonial community there, are eager for a more savory taste of India. But when their fates tangle with those of Cecil Fielding and his local friend, Dr. Aziz, at the nearby Marabar Caves, the community of Chandrapore is split wide open and everyone's life—British and Indian alike—is inexorably altered.
This is a special edition that originally came in a slipcase with a book called Intriguing India and 2 CDs, privately published by the MeadWestVaco Corporation and titled A Silk Road Journey II.
