Product Description:

James's correspondents included presidents and prime ministers, painters and great ladies, actresses and bishops, and the writers Robert Louis Stevenson, H.G. Wells and Edith Wharton. This fully-annotated selection from James's eloquent correspondence allows the writer to reveal himself and the fascinating world in which he lived. The letters provide a rich and fascinating source for James' views on his own works, on the literary craft, on sex, politics and friendship. Together they constitute, in Philip Horne's own words, James' 'real and best biography'.

Review:

A magnificent... book which will be irresistible to any Jamesian... [It] comes to us with the freshness of a new biography of the man. [I] spent a few enchanted weeks reading and rereading Horne's addictive volume. I haven't enjoyed a book so much in years. -- A. N. Wilson, Independent on Sunday

Philip Horne's cherishing, meticulous, ministering annotations and biographical work... make this a very good book indeed -- Adam Petite, Evening Standard

The whole selection is most helpfully (and stylishly) edited by Philip Horne -- Ian Hamilton, Sunday Telegraph
