“Francie’s fortunes are narrated with … incomparable ease, grace, and brilliancy ….” — The Nation
This short, little-known novel delivers a vicious jibe at journalistic malpractice and speaks directly to such contemporary issues as media ethics and celebrity worship. A psychologically incisive and biting story set in 1880′s Paris and written in James’s most lucid, penetrable prose, The Reverberator distills the well-loved and complex themes of the author’s major works while being wholly accessible and a vastly entertaining read.
The Reverberator will resonate strongly with Henry James fans, as well as literary fiction lovers.
