about this book

In his first novel about a young English widow and her ill fated marriage to a poor Italian, E.M. Forster anticipated the themes of cultural collision and the sterility of the English middle class that he would develop in A Room with a View and A Passage to India. Where Angels Fear to Tread is an accomplished book in which familiar notions of vice and virtue collapse underfoot and the best intentions go mortally awry.
