Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

E. M. Forster once described The Longest Journey as the book "I am most glad to have written." An introspective novel of manners at once comic and tragic, it tells of a sensitive and intelligent young man with an intense imagination and a certain amount of literary talent. He sets out full of hope to become a writer, but gives up his aspirations for those of the conventional world, gradually sinking into a life of petty conformity and bitter disappointments.

Synopsis:

Trilling described THE LONGEST JOURNEY as perhaps the most brilliant, the most dramatic, and the most passionate of E.M. Forster's works. Certainly it's the most autobiographical — but its form confuses many. Full of sudden death, hopeless love, and quaintly doomed relationships — and yet for all that, it's an enormously engaging work. It was Forster's own favorite of his works; he felt that in Stephen he had created a living being.
