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.
