Who was reading: A snappy pink-shirted man (snicker) on his morning commute from Queens to Midtown.
What does Super-Critic Lionel Trilling have to say about this book? "[A] literary fact that is likely to influence our feelings about all of Forster's books, is that they are by the author of Howard's End. That is not to imply a denigration of the book or to suggest a significant difference in quality. But Howard's End is undoubtedly Forster's masterpiece."
But in my own humble opinion . . . A Room With a View is a more enjoyable read all around.
