A Passage to India sparked such political fury that enraged Anglo-Indians threw copies into the Indian Ocean.

Adela Quested, visiting from England, shows an interest in Indian ways of life that is frowned upon by the British community. What happens to Adela at the infamous Marabar Caves, and the subsequent ordeal of the charming young Dr Aziz, is wrought into a tense drama which throws Chandrapore into a fever of racial tension.

This work helped create a climate of opinion in England which would take the British out of India in less than a generation.

This work won the Prix Femina Vie Heureuse and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and has sold over a million copies since its first publication.
