The Golden Bowl

4.99

The Golden Bowl is considered by critics to be one of Henry James's greatest achievements, and one of the finest novels in the English language.

It is the story of the opulent social scene of England and Italy between 1903 and 1909, and the story of two marriages dangerously intertwined in a web of secrets and lies.

Adam Verner, an American billionaire art collector, and his sheltered daughter Maggie marry, only to discover that their respective spouses— the beautiful American expatriate Charlotte Stant and the illustrious but bankrupt Italian aristocrat Prince Amerigo — are romantically entangled with one another.

HENRY JAMES (1843-1916) was an American novelist, playwright, biographer and critic. He is considered one of the finest writers of his time, his masterworks including The American, The Turn of the Screw, Daisy Miller, The Portrait of a Lady, The Wings of the Dove, The Aspern Papers, and The Golden Bowl

 
*The Golden Bowl ranked 32ndth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century by the Modern Library,
