About the Author:

'I've always been interested in people, but I've never liked them. 'Henry James (1843 - 1916), an American - born writer, was among the originators and leaders of the school of realism in fiction. He lived for a long time in England, and his major novels portray the American encounter with Europe. A prolific writer, James wrote novels, travelogues, biographies, short stories, criticism, and plays. He presented personal relationships, morality, consciousness, and perception as the major issues.
