This deeply sensitive and provocative collection includes "The Beast of the Jungle" (considered to be one of Henry James' best), "The Altar of the Dead", "The Birthplace", "The Liar", and "The Middle Years".
These are some very nice short stories and an accessible introduction to Henry James. Unfortunately, the reader's poor performance is a serious stumbling block to enjoyment. James is not an easy writer to perform, and Flo Gibson is clearly not up to the task. The audio quality is also very uneven with some sections difficult to hear well.
