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, The Portrait of a Lady, and The Golden Bowl, helping to pioneer literary realism.

I have read and re-read some of James' work, and looked forward to this one as it was one I wasn't familiar with. Try as I might, the ability of this book to hold my interest or to care a fig about any of the characters enough to care about what happened to them, gave me cause to be grateful I had not spent a good amount of money to purchase it.
