Synopsis: Sheldon M. Novick portrays Henry James as a man of great emotional depth--powerful, confident, generous, and above all, courageous. This landmark life follows the author's exceptional biography of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, of which Edmund Morris said in The New York Times, "masterly . . . perfected to the point of art." of photos.

Review: In this shrewd, scrupulous biography covering the life of Henry James from his birth until the threshold of his greatest work, Sheldon Novick steers away from the notion that James was a man of sublimated desires, the very figure of the repressed artist who observed life rather than living it. Novick, in fact, argues that the object of James' earliest expression of love was none other than the jurist Oliver Wendell Holmes. Whether one chooses to believe that thesis or not, this is a refreshingly frank discussion of James' early life that sheds new light on his astonishing capacity for literary creation.
