Omtale Travels with Henry James
To travel with James in these pages is to take an unhurried vacation with a thoroughly seasoned, supremely cultivated, acutely intelligent companion. Our guide is a curious, engaged observer not only of landscapes and streets and cathedrals but also of paintings and plays and the characteristics,national, social, and individual,of the people we encounter at his side. This is a book to be read slowly, the better to absorb its sights and sounds, its insights and reflections." ,from the foreword by Hendrik HertzbergBrimming with charm, wit, and biting criticism, this new collection of travel essays reintroduces Henry James as a formidable travel companion. Whether for a trip to Lake George or an afternoon visit to an art exhibit in Paris, James will delight readers with his insights and make them feel nostalgic for places they've never been.
