Worst James I've read? Certainly. I recognize that there are reasons for that: this was meant to be a play, and he's much better at understated moral turmoil than understated murderous rage. And if you're interested in James' career you'll want to read this at some point. But in itself? It reads like a bad play, in the worst possible way. The stage can never be empty, there can never be time between conversations, nobody ever seems to do anything other than talk to each other. The film trailer for this book would be: "IN A WORLD, where every time you mention somebody's name they mysteriously appear and the person you were originally talking to says "And here she is" or "Speak of the devil" or "Tell her yourself" or something excruciatingly similar, a group of people calmly talk about love, life, and [plot spoiler]... ...the murder of a small child, and, for no apparent reason, cover up this awful crime. At your local cinema, now!" The dialogue is great, but if you want great dialogue, just read Ivy Compton Burnett. The construction is clunky and terrifically awkward. I think Henry left some great stuff out of his New York edition, but he left this out for good reason. If you want to read something from this period, go read Poynton. If nothing else, reading this made me think, you know? I should go re-read Poynton.
Review: The Other HouseAvis d'utilisateur - Goodreads
Minor James - oddly flawed - almost a James as interpreted by Edward Gorey. Phony plot devices (death bed promises), theatrical pacing and scene setting, etc. Still, lots of interesting material. A sort of skeletal primer for Wings of the Dove and one of James' weirder more unsettling endings.
