In 1912, the SS Birmingham approaches India. On board is Morgan Forster, novelist and man of letters, who is embarking on a journey of discovery. As Morgan stands on deck, the promise of a strange new future begins to take shape before his eyes. The seeds of a story start to gather at the corner of his mind: a sense of impending menace, lust in close confines, under a hot, empty sky. Galgut animates the literary times in which Forster lived.

A close examination of the complicated contradictions that form a unique individual. This is not for someone looking for a propulsive plot. The pace is stately - I want to say 'glacial' because of the title, but that would sound pejorative. I admire Galgut's eloquent, introspective style.
