About Book

Book Description
E.M. Forster is perhaps best known for his novels A ROOM WITH A VIEW, HOWARD'S END and A PASSAGE TO INDIA. Yet THE LONGEST JOURNEY, published in 1907, is considered by many to be his most dramatic, passionate and brilliant work.

Greatly autobiographical, it centers on his education. He treats his public school with contempt, Cambridge more kindly. He makes King's College a paradise where friendship blooms and Hellenism rules.

"Forster was a great artist, whose fine interpretation by Jill Masters brings real and lasting joy to the listener." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

From the Inside Flap
In this searching tragicomedy of manners, personalities, and world views, E. M. Forster explores the "idea of England" he would later develop in Howard's End. Bookish, sensitive, and given to wild enthusiasms, Rickie Elliot is virtually made for a life at Cambridge, where he can subsist on a regimen of biscuits and philosophical debate. But the love-smitten Rickie leaves his natural habitat to marry the devastatingly practical Agnes Pembroke, who brings with her — as a sort of dowry — a teaching position at the abominable Sawston School.
