Our booksellers recommend: Arctic Summer by Damon Galgut
Subject: Contemporary fiction
Review: Galgut applies his fictive imagination and beautifully controlled prose style to a crucial period in the life of EM Forster, as Forster scours India and beyond searching for connection and finding the inspiration for his his masterpiece, A Passage To India. Tenderly devastating. (by CG)
Trivia: EM Forster refused a knighthood in 1949.
