Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“How did this nineteenth-century male writer create Isabel Archer, one of the most intriguing women characters in all of literature, capturing her journey from buoyant but naïve girl to wiser, more compassionate grown-up? Henry James was an American-born genius, in love with Europe, and fascinated by the interaction of the Old World (Europe) and the New (America). Where these sensibilities clashed, James found drama, wisdom, tenderness. Few write about the path from openhearted to slightly more seasoned than this master stylist.” O, The Oprah Magazine
