Forster’s novel is set in the 1920s Indian Raj and explores the everyday realities of life in the British Empire. Racial conflict is never far from the surface, and explodes into violence and recrimination, yet relationships develop across racial divides. Characters are locked in a relationship with a natural environment that can be hostile and is still home, and with the changing tides of political history. Forster’s novel is in my humble opinion, one of  the richest and subversive ‘Empire’ novels in the canon that gestures towards the  post-colonial fiction of Salman Rushdie, J. M Coetzee and G. G Marquez.
