Publisher's Summary

In 1912, the SS Birmingham approaches India. On board is Morgan Forster, novelist and man of letters. It will be another 12 years, and a second time spent in India, before A Passage to India, E. M. Forster's great work of literature, is published. During these years, Morgan will come to a profound understanding of the infinite subtleties and complexity of human nature.

Critic Reviews

"A fictional exploration of the life and times of one of Britain's finest novelists, E. M. Forster, from a twice Man Booker shortlisted author"
"Galgut seems the most likely of the crop of young South African novelists to fill J.M. Coetzee’s shoes." ( Guardian)
"Invites comparison with Greene, Conrad and Naipaul." ( Daily Telegraph)

Passage to India's Past

I thought this was a brilliant novel, focusing not only on Forster's adventures in India, the genesis of Passage to India and Maurice, but also those he meets along the way, such as the Woolfs, Cavafy and Carpenter. Galgut brings this lost time to life and Finlay Robertson does an admirable job in narrating.

My book of the year so far.

Beautiful tender and utterly believable account of Morgan Foster's life. His slow acceptance of himself as a minorite, and even as writer. I loved every word.
