about

The final volume of Henry James' stories of the bizarre

Henry James was a notable American author who lived and worked in England for forty years of his life-becoming a nationalised British subject shortly before his death. He is especially remembered for his portrayal of Americans abroad and for the creativity and freedom he displayed within his diverse literary perspectives. His novels remain highly regarded and continually read. Among them are Washington Square, The Bostonians, The Ambassadors and others. In any list of James' notable achievements one title frequently appears first-just as in every list of the most highly regarded supernatural fiction a James work is also certain to appear. That story is, of course, the novella, 'The Turn of the Screw'-a tale of creeping supernatural threat, terror, polluted innocence and inevitable tragedy. It is a deserved classic of supernatural fiction and true to the nature of such things subordinates James's other work in the genre almost to obscurity. Predictably a prolific author who had both a talent for and an interest in the fiction of the bizarre and ghostly would be unlikely to venture into its shadowy realms but once. This special Leonaur collection of Henry James' supernatural fiction fills four substantial volumes for modern readers to relish. A veritable literary feast is in store for those who dare to venture within its pages.
Readers will be enthralled by the strange story of transcended time that is 'The Sense of the Past' together with supporting notes. Joining it here are three novelettes, 'The Jolly Corner,' 'The Wheel of Time' and 'Glasses' and two featured short stories 'The Last of the Valerii' and 'The Way it Came'. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket -a credit to your book case.
