Overview

This early novel by Henry James is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. An unnamed English narrator observes and obsesses over the personal lives of other guests at a weekend gathering in the country. The reader is frequently left to decide whether his conclusions are facts or fancies. This is a fascinating novel of the period by the American literary realist that is still an interesting read today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

As the story progresses, the narrator begins to detect vast changes in his fellow guests as they begin taking on each other's personalities.
