THE OUTCRY is James' last novel. At the heart of the story is a questions of attribution: Lord Theign owns a painting which has for generations been known as a Moretto, but which may in fact be a Montavano, and whereas a Moretto, costing a mere 10,000 pounds holds no interest whatsoever for the acquisitive Mr Bender, a Montavano - at 100,000 pounds - most definitely does. In typical Jamesian fashion the vulgarities of the attribution and notoriety of the painting are kept off stage. Written first as a play and then novelised, THE OUTCRY is only available in this Penguin edition.

About the Author:

American expatriate writer Henry James was born in 1843 in New York City and was educated in New York, London, Paris, and Geneva James settled permanently in England in 1875 becoming a British subject 1915. His masterly fiction justaposed American innocence and European experience in a series of intense, psychologically complex works. James was a prolific author, and his writing includes, in addition to fiction, a substantial body of literary criticism and travel essays. He died in 1916.

Review:

"The story is told with all Mr. James’ delicate humor and gift for keen analysis." —Booklist

"The subject...has been handled with ingenuity, not without humor, with a fine effect of sharpness and perspicacity. That is Mr. James’s way. There are many fine phrases, crisply expressive, admirable flashes." —The New York Times

"If you thought you knew all the books of Henry James, think again— this one, James’ last, is largely unknown because it’s been out of print since its original publication in 1911. God knows why, though — it’s a delightful, surprisingly light-hearted take on James’ favorite topic, the clash of cultures..." —mobylives.com
