Reviews

"James' finest working of his preoccupation with the theme of innocence corrupted... James is the master of making what is not said the most important thing on the page" -- Kate Atkinson "A brilliant social comedy seen wholly from a child's point of view, this is a dazzling technical feat that, as always with James, deepens as it develops - like the life of the child herself. An exhilarating prelude to the great novels of his famous late phase" -- Alan Hollinghurst * New York Times * "Contains some of his best comedy and some of his most melancholy insights...embodies everything that James excelled at in fiction" -- Paul Theroux "Henry James is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare is in the history of poetry" -- Graham Greene "Perfect" -- F. R. Leavis
