Henry James was one of the greatest and most prolific American authors ever to have lived.
Henry James believed that the short novel was the perfect literary form, and his achievements here brilliantly display his mastery of it. Noted literary critic Philip Rahv has collected ten of James’s most important short novels to make one distinguished volume. Accompanied by Rahv’s informative commentary and keen insights, this collection contains the following classics:
MADAME DE MAUVES DAISY MILLER AN INTERNATIONAL EPISODE THE SIEGE OF LONDON LADY BARBERINA THE AUTHOR OF BELTRAFFIO THE ASPERN PAPERS THE PUPIL THE TURN OF THE SCREW THE BEAST IN THE JUNGLE
