About this Item: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised. Language: English . Brand New Book. Henry James s classic tale of romance in urban nineteenth-century America, Washington Square is edited with an introduction and notes by Martha Banta in Penguin Classics.When timid and plain Catherine Sloper is courted by the dashing and determined Morris Townsend, her father, convinced that the young man is nothing more than a fortune-hunter, delivers an ultimatum: break off her engagement, or be stripped of her inheritance. Torn between her desire to win her father s love and approval and her passion for the only man who has ever declared his love for her, Catherine faces an agonising dilemma, and becomes all too aware of the restrictions that others seek to place on her freedom. James s masterly novel deftly interweaves the public and private faces of nineteenth-century New York society; it is also a deeply moving study of innocence destroyed.This edition of Washington Square includes a chronology, suggested further reading, notes and an introduction discussing the novel s lasting influence and James s depiction of the quiet strength of his heroine.Henry James (1843-1916) son of a prominent theologian, and brother to the philosopher William James, was one of the most celebrated novelists of the fin-de-siecle. His novella Daisy Miller (1878) established him as a literary figure on both sides of the Atlantic, and his other novels in Penguin Classics include Washington Square (1880), The Portrait of a Lady (1881), The Awkward Age (1899), The Wings of the Dove (1902), The Ambassadors (1903) and The Golden Bowl (1904).If you enjoyed Washington Square, you might like Edith Wharton s The House of Mirth, also available in Penguin Classics. Washington Square is a perfectly balanced novel. a work of surpassing refinement and interest Elizabeth Hardwick Perhaps the only novel in which a man has successfully invaded the feminine field and produced a work comparable to Jane Austen s Graham Greene.

About this Item: Valancourt Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. So remarkable in truth is this novel that I cannot understand why it is not universally known and admired. - Hugh Walpole I Am Jonathan Scrivener remains a tantalizing, highly diverting philosophical novel of rare elegance and wit. - Michael Dirda James Wrexham is thirty-nine, lonely, and stuck in a dead-end job when he comes upon an advertisement for a position as secretary to Mr. Jonathan Scrivener. Much to his surprise, he is hired at a lavish salary despite never even meeting Scrivener, and he is told to take up residence at once in the flat of his new employer, who has suddenly disappeared. Mystified by Scrivener s strange conduct and desperate to learn something about him, it seems Wrexham will get the answers he seeks when Scrivener s friends begin to visit the flat: Pauline Mandeville, an ethereal beauty, Francesca Bellamy, a widow who may responsible for the death of her husband, Andrew Middleton, a disillusioned alcoholic, and Antony Rivers, a handsome playboy. But as each of them unfolds his story about Scrivener, it seems that none of them are describing the same person, though all are obsessed with finding him. Why has he hired Wrexham, and why does he seem to have thrust this unlikely group of people together? Is Scrivener engaged in an inscrutable experiment, or could he be laying some kind of trap? And will this enigmatic figure ever appear and say, I am Jonathan Scrivener ? Popular in his time for his psychological thrillers, Claude Houghton (1889-1961) was admired by writers as diverse as P. G. Wodehouse, Henry Miller, Hugh Walpole, and Graham Greene, but has fallen into neglect in the past half-century. This new edition restores his masterpiece I Am Jonathan Scrivener (1930) to print and includes Walpole s introduction from the 1935 edition and an essay by Pulitzer Prize winning critic and Washington Post columnist Michael Dirda.

Torn between her desire to win her father's love and approval and her passion for the only man who has ever declared his love for her, Catherine faces an agonising dilemma, and becomes all too aware of the restrictions that others seek to place on her freedom. James's masterly novel deftly interweaves the public and private faces of nineteenth-century New York society; it is also a deeply moving study of innocence destroyed. This edition of Washington Square includes a chronology, suggested further reading, notes and an introduction discussing the novel's lasting influence and James's depiction of the quiet strength of his heroine. Henry James (1843-1916) son of a prominent theologian, and brother to the philosopher William James, was one of the most celebrated novelists of the fin-de-siècle. His novella 'Daisy Miller' (1878) established him as a literary figure on both sides of the Atlantic, and his other novels in Penguin Classics include Washington Square (1880), The Portrait of a Lady (1881), The Awkward Age (1899), The Wings of the Dove (1902), The Ambassadors (1903) and The Golden Bowl (1904). If you enjoyed Washington Square, you might like Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth, also available in Penguin Classics. 'Washington Square is a perfectly balanced novel. a work of surpassing refinement and interest' Elizabeth Hardwick 'Perhaps the only novel in which a man has successfully invaded the feminine field and produced a work comparable to Jane Austen's' Graham Greene 192 pp. Englisch.

About this Item: Valancourt Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. So remarkable in truth is this novel that I cannot understand why it is not universally known and admired. - Hugh Walpole I Am Jonathan Scrivener remains a tantalizing, highly diverting philosophical novel of rare elegance and wit. - Michael Dirda James Wrexham is thirty-nine, lonely, and stuck in a dead-end job when he comes upon an advertisement for a position as secretary to Mr. Jonathan Scrivener. Much to his surprise, he is hired at a lavish salary despite never even meeting Scrivener, and he is told to take up residence at once in the flat of his new employer, who has suddenly disappeared. Mystified by Scrivener s strange conduct and desperate to learn something about him, it seems Wrexham will get the answers he seeks when Scrivener s friends begin to visit the flat: Pauline Mandeville, an ethereal beauty, Francesca Bellamy, a widow who may responsible for the death of her husband, Andrew Middleton, a disillusioned alcoholic, and Antony Rivers, a handsome playboy. But as each of them unfolds his story about Scrivener, it seems that none of them are describing the same person, though all are obsessed with finding him. Why has he hired Wrexham, and why does he seem to have thrust this unlikely group of people together? Is Scrivener engaged in an inscrutable experiment, or could he be laying some kind of trap? And will this enigmatic figure ever appear and say, I am Jonathan Scrivener ? Popular in his time for his psychological thrillers, Claude Houghton (1889-1961) was admired by writers as diverse as P. G. Wodehouse, Henry Miller, Hugh Walpole, and Graham Greene, but has fallen into neglect in the past half-century. This new edition restores his masterpiece I Am Jonathan Scrivener (1930) to print and includes Walpole s introduction from the 1935 edition and an essay by Pulitzer Prize winning critic and Washington Post columnist Michael Dirda.

Like Wine, or Fire, or Death, or Love . . .: SYNOPSIS: Like Wine, or Fire, or Death, or Love . . .: Stevensons Dark Adventures take us deep into the realms of the gloriously bizarre and elaborately sinister. So writes Mark Valentine in his Introduction to this definitive collection of Robert Louis Stevensons fantastic and macabre stories. While Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde has passed into the collective consciousness, many of Stevensons weird tales, although of seminal importance to the genre, have long been forgotten. This book seeks to redress the balance, bringing back into print the more obscure stories and collecting together the better-known into one volume. Stevensons range and inventiveness is breathtaking; from the sheer recklessness and swagger of The Suicide Club stories to the more subtle terrors of Olalla; from the macabre horror of The Body Snatcher to the exuberance and exoticism of The Isle of Voices. Even Jekyll and Hyde has the capacity to surprise the careful re-reader with its moral complexity, its inner qualities. Over a century after they were written, Stevensons stories brim with sophistication and power. And who can long resist Stevensons overt relish for the storytellers art, his mastery of style and content and his swagger in the face of the mundane and the sordidly material. . . . The excitement, the fierce joy, the delight in strangeness, the pleasure in deep and dark adventures . . .: all these burn as brightly today as they have ever done. REVIEW: 'The Suicide Club and Other Dark Adventures could hardly be improved upon. It is a substantial collection of Robert Louis Stevensons short fiction and shows the haunting hold that the strange, weird and macabre had on his imagination. You will find herein many wonderful and exemplary instances of the storytellers art, by a writer whose admirers have included Henry James, Borges, Graham Greene, Nabokov, Harry Mathews and many another writer besides.' - Paul Kane, The Compulsive Reader.
