Here is Henry James' dark comedic masterpiece, written in the final period of his life.

Lambert Strether goes to Paris to bring back Chad, son of the wealthy New England widow he plans to marry. But he gradually comes to feel that life in Paris may hold more for him than in Woollett, Massachusetts.

American-born English author Henry James (1843- 1916), was one of the founders and leaders of realism in fiction and is considered to be one of the great British novelists.

    " Look, it's Henry James, and while reading it, I more than once missed my train stop: James somehow has the capacity to make the hemming and hawing of rueful, middle-aged man engrossing enough for me to forget where I am. And when "where I am" happens to be the G train after midnight, that's saying something. "

    " Not my favorite James book, but this was my first attempt at reading him, and his work can be horribly dense. An interesting read, if you can wade through it. "

    " The way James uses pronouns ought to be illegal. "

    " This was more dense, less approachable than I remember but when I focused like needed, it was very interesting. His technique is awesome--the way he makes the focus the inner workings of Strether's mind from the start--not the external events. But there was frustration; i just wished they would actually say concretely the issues they were discussing instead of dancing around everything, though I suppose that is how conversations usually go. It just took very careful reading. There are others of his I prefer, but still wonderful. "
