From the Back Cover
One of Henry James's most mesmerizing and unusual novels, The Sacred Fount ( 1901) has for its scene a weekend party at the great English country house Newmarch. Here James leads the reader down a bizarre garden path. The Sacred Fount--his only novel to employ a first-person narrator--places us in the hands of an obsessive novelist ( never named and never described, but perhaps familiar), who detects alarming changes in his acquaintances. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

It is not to be expected that after the three great novels, and the great short stories of the previous 8 or 10 years, that things continue to move up as well as ahead, I suppose.
