An international literary sensation, Colm Toibin s brilliant and profoundly moving novel tells the story of celebrated writer Henry James. While delving back into James s past, the narrative s present day takes place over the course of five significant years in the author s life, during which he produced a sequence of major novels that came into being at a high personal cost. In stunningly resonant prose, Toibin captures nineteenth-century European landscapes and the loneliness and longing, the hope and despair of a man who never married, never resolved his sexual identity, and whose forays into intimacy inevitably failed him and those he tried to love. Time and again, James, a master of psychological subtlety in his fiction, proves blind to his own heart. In "The Master," Colm Toibin has written his most powerful novel, one that enters the mind and soul of Henry James, the man and the writer, to give us a true portrait of the artist.
