Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The crystal clear portraiture, the delicate conveying of nuances of thought and life, and the astonishing command of his medium show Forster at the height of his powers.” New York Times
“Dastor’s performance is outstanding. A huge cast of characters of all classes and nationalities comes vibrantly alive as he takes the voice of each…Dastor cannot be surpassed. His eloquent reading transforms into powerful performance literature…With the multitude of voices and the literary distinction of the prose, A Passage to India is a joy in audio.” AudioFile
A Passage to India is one of the great books of the twentieth century and has had enormous influence. We need its message of tolerance and understanding now more than ever. Forster was years ahead of his time, and we ought to try to catch up with him.” Margaret Drabble, award-winning author
