Overview

A renaissance of E. M. Forster is certainly under way. The success of the many films based upon his novels demonstrates Forster’s appeal to the modern audience and his aptitude for entertaining a mass quantity of readers over several decades.

The Longest Journey
A Room with a View

“E. M. Forster’s characters are the most lifelike we have had since Jane Austen laid down the pen.”—Virgina Woolf

“[Forster] does not hesitate to kill off a character right after introducing him with a careful description which leads us to anticipate a larger role.”—Louis Auchincloss

“The shapeliness of his prose and his plotting still satisfies. The width remains piercing and seamlessly painless.”—the New York Times

“There is no questioning or resisting the charm of Mr. Forster. The Longest Journey steadily attains beauty.”—Saturday Review

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.
