Publisher's Summary

The vivacious Kate Croy finds herself torn between love and money, friendship and ambition; 'the crown of Henry James's achievement.'
Now a critically acclaimed film.


What the Critics Say

"Prunella Scales's cultivated tones are well matched to the cadences of Jamesian language. In some of his scenes of satrirical observation her delivery of dialogue cleverly highlights a gentle but piercing wit." (Herald)
"Listeners are likely to be drawn into the novel and rewarded for having chosen the aural route as opposed to the more arduous, printed path. James's dense style is leavened when read aloud. This makes the descriptive passages more evocative and the dialogue more active and convincing." (Observer)
