Book Description:

This scholarly edition includes the final ten stories Henry James wrote, and presents satirical critiques of an increasingly narcissistic, acquisitive society. With its extensive textual history and wide-ranging notes, the volume will be of interest to James scholars and students of early twentieth-century Anglo-American culture.
