9780720614817: The Beautiful Child

From the acclaimed author of Pemberley and Thornfield Hall comes a tale inspired by Henry James

The Beautiful Child is the last known unfinished story by the great American writer, ending on a Jamesian note of terror and amplified throughout by Tennant's trademark feminist-dreamlike style. A chilling account of cruelty and neglect, it suggests a terrifying real scandal behind James's inability to complete his story of a couple who beseech a fashionable artist to paint the child they never had—none other than the dipsomaniac Mr. and Mrs. Smith, longstanding servants of James until the novel was abandoned.

About the Author:

Emma Tennant is best known for a postmodern approach to her fiction, which often gives a dreamlike twist to classic stories. Her books include a sequel to Pride and Prejudice called Pemberley and Thornfield Hall: Jane Eyre's Hidden Story.

Review:

"Readers in search of a smart fright . . . should devour Emma Tennant's cunning, moody and bone-chilling new story inspired by "The Turn of the Screw", by the shadowy life of Henry James—and the nature of fiction itself, as a kind of haunting."  —Independent

"Skin-prickling...a rallying call for the challenging and the difficult that lie behind the cosy terror of a ghost story"  —The Herald Scotland
