Publisher's Summary

This terse and startling novel is the story of a struggle for possession and of its devastating consequences. Three women seek to secure the affections of one man, while he, in turn, tries to satisfy them all. But in the middle of this contest of wills stands his unwitting and vulnerable young daughter. The conclusion of The Other House makes it one of the most disturbing and memorable of Henry James' depictions of the uncontrollable passions that lie beneath the polished veneer of civilized life.
(P)2000 Blackstone Audio Inc.

Critic Reviews

"The Other House contains some of the most harrowing, compressed, and ambiguous scenes James ever wrote....The denouement, in swift, fraught scenes, is a shocker." (The Threepenny Review)
"Davidson carefully and subtly chronicles the inhumanity of murder in an understated reading that hints rather than declares, which seems perfect for this psychological study." (Booklist)
