This novel about a young homosexual in early 20th century England was not published until 1971. Forster died in 1970 and never sought to have it published because he considered it unpublishable during his lifetime. Aside from the taboo subject of same-sex love, the book is mainly about the class system and how crossing the class boundaries is considered shocking and "just not done." To be honest, I found this book to be as big a snore as A Passage to India and Howard's End. I guess I'm just not a Forster fan.
