About the Author:

Henry James was born in 1843 in New York City. In 1875 he settled for a year in Paris, where he met Flaubert, Turgenev and other literary figures. The next year he moved to London, but in 1898 he left to live at Lamb House, Rye, Sussex. Henry James became an English citizen in 1915, and died in 1916. He wrote about twenty novels, among which we remember Washington Square, The Portrait of a Lady, The Bostonians, The Ambassadors and The Golden Bowl.

From AudioFile:

Eugenia, an expatriated American whose marriage to a German prince has come undone, and her charming brother, Felix, are visiting relatives in the countryside near Boston. Their intent is to arrange a wealthy second marriage for Eugenia. O'Malley gives Henry James's classic a smooth, well-paced reading. develop their personalities and express their emotions. Most import-antly, all the satire of James's nineteenth-century study of the contrast in manners and morals between the wealthy of Europe and those of America comes across in O'Malley's performance.
