An unsettling new collection of Henry James's best short stories exploring
ghosts and the uncanny, edited by Susie Boyt. In 'The Turn of the Screw',
one of the most famous ghost stories of all time, a governess becomes
obsessed with the belief that malevolent forces are stalking the children
in her care. But are the children really in danger - and if so, from who?
The novella is accompanied here by several more tales exploring human
psychology through ghostly visitations and the uncanny, including 'The
Romance of Certain Old Clothes', 'The Last of the Valerii', 'Sir Edmund
Orme', 'Owen Wingrave', 'The Friend of the Friends', 'The Third Person' and
'The Jolly Corner'. This is the final volume of three new Penguin Classics
collections representing the best of Henry James's short fiction. The other
volumes are 'The Aspern Papers and Other Tales', focussing on themes of art
and literature, and 'Daisy Miller and Other Tales', exploring Anglo-
American relations.
