Review:

"This subtle, beautifully constructed study of an attractive, intelligent, spirited young woman's transition from insouciance to enlightenment is a classic . Passion, intrigue, betrayal - it sounds like a potboiler, but James's observations of Victorian manners, understanding of human nature and exquisite prose elevate it to another league" ( Guardian)

" The Portrait of a Lady is entirely successful in giving one the sense of having met somebody far too radiantly good for this world" (Rebecca West)

"Subtle and sophisticated and concerned with psychological nuance and social acceptability" (Joanna Trollope)

"James is the master of making what is not said the most important thing on the page" (Kate Atkinson)

"I read Portrait of a Lady by Henry James maybe once a year. I just love the story. I love the pace of it" (Colm Toibin)

Book Description:

'Henry James is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare is in the history of poetry' Graham Greene
