Product Description


'A rich book in which it is a pleasure to become absorbed' (Claire Tomalin Independent on Sunday )

'Wonderfully full-blooded . . . A brilliant idea . . . superbly enjoyable material, much of it unfamiliar, all of it stimulating' (Philip Horne Guardian )

'Compelling . . . not an addition to the pile of "chronicle" biographies of Henry James . . . [The opening] is unforgettable, like a scene from a film . . . [This book] combines scholarly rigour with a nice line in nineteenth-century gothic' (Victoria Glendinning Daily Telegraph )

'Gordon's approach to biography is imaginative and risky . . . The result is a magnificent, important book, which points the way forward for the whole biographical genre' (Kathryn Hughes Literary Review )

Book Description

Told through the lense of Henry James's relationship with two women who particularly shaped his writing, Henry James is a unforgettable read by one of our best-loved biographers.
