How is this book unique?
About The Diary of a Man of Fifty by Henry JamesHenry James story "The Diary of a Man of Fifty" is a moving and thought-provoking meditation on aging and coming to terms with one's past. The narrator pays a return visit to Italy, where he spent some time many years before, and revisits memories of an ultimately doomed love affair, some painful and some enriching. Excerpt from The Diary of a Man of Fifty: Again the young man hesitated a little, and then he confessed that the group of painters he preferred, on the whole, to all others was that of the early Florentines. I was so struck with this that I stopped short. That was exactly my taste! And then I passed my hand into his arm, and we went our way again. We sat down on an old stone bench in the Cascine, and a solemn, blank-eyed Hermes, with wrinkles accentuated by the dust of ages, stood above us and listened to our talk.
