Review

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.
