The American (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading)by Henry James
The American portrays courtship with the virtuosity and soulfulness that characterizes a seduction. With Paris as its artistic backdrop, the novel reveals the insecurities a powerful American feels when pursuing an elusive woman. The novel is simultaneously a gothic romance, a quest narrative, an unsolved murder mystery, a revenge drama, and James' ticket of admission to the higher echelon of American writers.
