A magnificent... book which will be irresistible to any Jamesian... [It] comes to us with the freshness of a new biography of the man. [I] spent a few enchanted weeks reading and rereading Horne's addictive volume. I haven't enjoyed a book so much in years. -- A. N. Wilson, Independent on Sunday
Philip Horne's cherishing, meticulous, ministering annotations and biographical work... make this a very good book indeed -- Adam Petite, Evening Standard
The whole selection is most helpfully (and stylishly) edited by Philip Horne -- Ian Hamilton, Sunday Telegraph --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the Publisher
This fully annotated selection from Henry James's eloquent correspondence follows him across America, Britain and continental Europe, and offers us a broad and fascinating panorama of an age of transition, when the foundations of our own world were being laid down. Philip Horne has spent over a decade looking at the thousands of letters in archives in America and England and half of those here have never before been published. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product description

A Life in Letters is a pleasure to be savoured with one or two entries a day; as if one were the recipient of these missives.
Taken before bed, they may not work as a sleeping pill, but they do take the mind off of one's own cares and into another world.
