Audible Editor Reviews

Jim Killavey offers a nuanced, wry performance in Henry James’ penetrating 1878 story of clashing social mores, "Daisy Miller".

In Switzerland, two Americans, Daisy Miller and Frederick Winterbourne, strike a romance that is quashed because of the reservations held by their families. Later on, Daisy and Frederick meet again in Rome, but free-spirited Daisy’s friendship with an Italian man engulfs her in scandal and ultimately leads to her downfall.

With a deep, throaty voice, Killavey captures the underlying ironic humor in James’ dense and psychologically insightful prose.

Publisher's Summary

Daisy Miller is one of Henry James' shorter and earlier novels. It was written in 1878. It portrays the confused courtship of a headstrong American girl by Winterbourne, a compatriot of hers who is much more sophisticated. His pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the other expatriates they meet in Switzerland and Italy. Her lack of understanding regarding social mores of the society she so desperately wishes to enter ultimately leads to a very unexpected ending.

In addition to being a very good story, the novel serves as both a psychological description of the mind of a young woman and an analysis of the traditional views of a society to a clear outsider. This continues to be one of James's most popular works.
