Overview

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.

Praise

Perhaps the most brilliant, the most dramatic, and the most passionate of [Forster's] works. (Lionel Trilling)
