E.M. Forster

E. M. Forster, author, critic, and member of the Bloomsbury Group, wrote two great books, Howard’s End and A Room with a View, and several reasonably good ones, many of which seem to have been made into films featuring Helena Bonham-Carter. Forster’s books are the epitome of Important English Literature: complex, elegantly written stories about freakishly repressed people.

Note: Cynthia Heimel once described the film version of A Room With A View as the “closest thing women have to porn”. So true.
