Henry James was one of the most influential novelists in the English language. This biography looks at James's personal relationships, rich in friendships with the literary and artistic greats of the Victorian and early modern world, from Browning, Tennyson, Turgenev, Flaubert and Burne-Jones to Sargent, Wilde, Shaw, Kipling, Stevenson, Wells and Conrad. His own correspondence, as well as family letters, both published and unpublished, are at the heart of this biography.

Review:

"A good up-to-date one-volume life of Henry James was long overdue; Fred Kaplan... has done the job splendidly with Henry James: The Imagination of Genius... Here, at last, is a thoughtful, balanced book to give us a consistent and persuasive account of the writer's life and his development as an author."

(Miranda Seymour New York Times Book Review)
