Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) is a novel by E. M. Forster. On a journey to Tuscany with her young friend and traveling companion Caroline Abbott, widowed Lilia Herriton falls in love with an Italian man named Gino, a handsome Italian much younger than herself, and decides to stay. Furious, her dead husband's family send Lilia's brother-in-law Philip to Italy to prevent a misalliance, but he arrives too late. Lilia has already married Gino and becomes pregnant.

From the Publisher:

Forster's acclaimed first novel displays his finely honed talent for using the tragi-comic incident to comment on human existence.Focusing on a family of London suburbanites, the respectable, pompous and appearance-obsessed Herritons, Where Angels Fear To Tread is a comedy of manners that utilizes the elements of farce to demonstrate how a comic clash of cultural sensibilities can quickly turn to tragedy. This is Forster's first novel and is a precursor to his later masterpieces, A Passage to India and A Room with a View.

About the Author:

E. M. Forster (1879–1970) is the author of six novels, including A Room with a View and Howards End, many short stories, and numerous works of nonfiction.

Zadie Smith is the acclaimed author of White Teeth and On Beauty, shortlisted for the Booker Prize (see pp. 2–3).

Gilbert Adair, writer, film critic, and journalist, is the author of Love and Death on Long Island, among other novels.
