Chosen by Sophia
Based on E M Forster’s Howards End, this book follows the lives of a mixed race US family, addressing ethnic and cultural differences.
✎ “While a fantastic book in its own regard, On Beauty‘s nod to E M Forster’s classic provides an additional layer of appreciation for the attentive reader. It is a modern classic written in a contemporary vernacular with a bevy of characters who all have a distinct voice. Everything in the book is beautifully described, from the people, to the locations to the execution of everyday events. A thoroughly enjoyable read.” – Rachel
