9780141185316: Where Angels Fear to Tread (Penguin Modern Classics)

A group of well-bred English people react violently when they are confronted by a situation outside their experience. The widowed Lilia marries an Italian, and the contrast between the vitality of disreputable Gino, and the narrowness of the English, forms the central theme of the story.

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.
