Henry James and the art of nonfiction by Tony Tanner( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
"Finally, Tanner celebrates James as a writer of autobiography that will have nothing to do with chronology or conventional sequence. Tanner warns readers not to approach James's autobiography expecting fully scripted enactments of historically significant events. Rather they should be prepared to encounter, for example, an odd chin, an amazing eyeglass, or the words of a cross aunt. James "allows memory to browse and graze as it may, as it will," says Tanner. "The result, and effectively the last (and unfinished) piece of writing from this supreme artist, was an incomparable work of, apparently, supreme artlessness. There had never been anything quite like it.""--Jacket
