“One cannot be friends with the English!”
The advice was harsh but clear, and Aziz ignored it. Now he lies in jail on a charge of sexual assault. Forster’s masterpiece poses a question more urgent today than ever: how can we love one another in a world divided by culture and belief?

Full of humour and rich humanity, but with vast philosophical and political scope, A Passage to India is one of the great novels of the 20th Century. simple8’s thrilling new adaptation reimagines it for contemporary Britain.
