Product Description

Review

"James' finest working of his preoccupation with the theme of innocence corrupted... James is the master of making what is not said the most important thing on the page" (Kate Atkinson)

"Contains some of his best comedy and some of his most melancholy insights...embodies everything that James excelled at in fiction" (Paul Theroux)

"Henry James is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare is in the history of poetry" (Graham Greene)

"Perfect" (F. R. Leavis)

"An ugly little comedy" (Henry James)

Book Description

'A very modern story about aimless lives and messy marriages' Paul Theroux

From the Back Cover

INCLUDES THE STORY 'THE PUPIL'

'James's finest working of his preoccupation with the theme of innocence corrupted' Kate Atkinson

Caught in the crossfire of her parents' acrimonious divorce, witness to their battles, intrigues and affairs, neglected and exploited, Maisie is a child who knows too much about the world of adults. James's portrait of a little girl who maintains her goodness and dignity in the face of the bitterness and profligacy of her warring parents is both thought-provoking and inspiring.
