What Maisie knew by Henry James( Book )
138 editions published between 1881 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,318 libraries worldwide
In the aftermath of an acrimonious divorce, young Maisie Farange finds herself shuttled back and forth between her father and mother, both of them amoral and monstrously self-involved. After her parents find new spouses -- and after the new spouses find themselves drawn to each other, as much for Maisie's sake as their own -- Maisie feels even more misplaced. As she observes the world of adults and their adulteries, and finds herself in the position to decide her own fate, Henry James's rendering of her child's-eye view -- his depiction of what precisely Maisie knows -- draws the reader into this scathing satire of social mores and insightful meditation on familial dependence

Complete stories, 1892-1898 by Henry James( Book )
31 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,133 libraries worldwide
The 21 stories in Complete Stories 1892-1898 represent James at the peak of his storytelling powers. Among them are "The Turn of the Screw," one of his most popular works, a terrifying exercise in psychological horror centering on the corruption of childhood innocence; "The Real Thing," a playful consideration of the illusions of art and the paradoxes of authenticity; "The Figure in the Carpet," "The Death of the Lion," and "The Middle Years," three very different expositions of the mysteries of authorship, embodying some of James's most profound insights into the nature of his own art; "The Altar of the Dead," a somber, ultimately wrenching meditation on the relation of the living to the dead; and "In the Cage," an extended evocation of the inner life of a young woman trapped in a dehumanizing job at a postal-and-telegraph office
The princess Casamassima by Henry James( Book )
161 editions published between 1886 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 3,051 libraries worldwide
"Counter When Henry James chose to, as he did in The Princess Casamassima, he could write about the political turbulence of his era with astonishing excitement and directness. The London underworld of terrorist conspiracies that entangles his hero, Hyacinth Robinson, comes alive under his pen with a violence that seems, 100 years later, only too familiar." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/random0410/91053000.html

Complete stories, 1864-1874 by Henry James( Book )
34 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,593 libraries worldwide
"This volume, part of The Library of America's historic new five-volume edition of James's world-famous stories, gathers his first 24 published stories. Diverse in subject, setting, and formal technique, they show the young James equally at ease writing historical tales or exploring contemporary events, as in three stories that treat the effects of the Civil War on civilians. James very early exhibited his famous psychological acuity, as in "Master Eustace," a study of a spoiled child's emotional ruthlessness, and "Guest's Confession," a comic portrayal of the narcissism of an arrogant businessman. Here are early examples of James's lifelong fascination with art and artists, and the first explorations of some of his most significant themes: the force of social convention and the compromises it demands; the complex and often ambiguous encounter between Europe and America; the energies of human passion measured against the rigors of artistic discipline. Adumbrating later triumphs, and compelling in their own right, the stories in this volume reveal an accomplished young talent mastering the art of the short story."--Jacket

In the cage : & other tales by Henry James( Book )
80 editions published between 1898 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,130 libraries worldwide
"A young girl working in a Mayfair post office is privy to the brief yet substantial messages telegraphed by wealthy, fashionable people to their similar friends. As she reads, she develops her own particular intimacy with various scandals, amours, and intrigues. Her mind captive in the cage of her workplace, and with only the prospect of a rather dull marriage to look forward to, she surrenders to her powerful imagination, her chosen entertainment being the sporadic visits of the dashing Captain Everard, and the 'extravagance, selfishness, immorality, and crimes' of the idle rich."--Jacket
The Aspern papers by Henry James( Book )
128 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 672 libraries worldwide
1800s Venice is the setting for this tale of greed and obsession: a crumbling, beautiful, mysterious place where the incredible becomes real and the strange is almost commonplace. In fervent pursuit of the letters written by a famous deceased poet to a former lover, the anonymous narrator becomes a lodger under a false name in the dilapidated palazzo of the woman and her spinster niece, in the hope of procuring his prize. The resulting clash of wills and cat-and-mouse games among the trio reveal the deepest motivations that drive human nature - and just how far is the narrator willing to go to get what he wants?
