    A great read--and a good place to start reading Henry James

    This is early James--although this particular edition has the revisions that he made for the New York Edition in 1907. Heavily influenced by Balzac, this novel nevertheless contains many pleasures that are purely Jamesian. I had not read it for years, and enjoyed my return to its pages immensely.

    BN should care more care over their descriptions

    Barnes & Noble should take greater care over the description and reviews that they attach to the books they sale. This text is not a Dove Classic it is not about the romance of a woman with an Italian. This error should embarrass and call for greater care and honor to each text.
