Here is Henry James' dark comedic masterpiece, written in the final period of his life.
Lambert Strether goes to Paris to bring back Chad, son of the wealthy New England widow he plans to marry. But he gradually comes to feel that life in Paris may hold more for him than in Woollett, Massachusetts.
American-born English author Henry James (1843- 1916), was one of the founders and leaders of realism in fiction and is considered to be one of the great British novelists.
Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.
James' style is complex and requires a very clear, clean audio recording. The reader of this extraordinary masterpiece is almost unintelligible. His accent is affected to the point of absurdity and inexplicably inconsistent. In addition, it sounds as though he has an ice cube in his mouth. Dreadful production and a waste of money.
