Meet the Author


Henry James (1843-1916) was born in America but after forty years in England became a British subject in 1915.  A consummate prose stylist and innovator, possessed of acute psychological discernment, James took the art of the novel to rarefied heights in such masterworks as The Turn of the Screw and The Golden Bowl, helping to pioneer literary realism.

"Bloody hell. Let's get you out of here." He looks over at Benny. "I'm taking Nathan back to camp." He picks Nathan up over his shoulder and flies off to camp.

Henry James is regarded as a great American author. However, reading this novel brings home the fact of his many years of residence in England. The language is just too convoluted for my taste. The story was certainly worth a read and some thought, but there really was no action. I'm just not a huge fan of 20th century Enlish style and themes I guess. Maybe other readers will like it more.
