By Henry James

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE UPCOMING NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES, THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR

By turns chilling, funny, tragic, and profound, this collection of six Henry James short novels allows readers to experience the full range of his skills and vision.

The title story, "The Turn of the Screw," is a chilling masterpiece of psychological terror that mixes the phantoms of the mind with those of the supernatural.

"Daisy Miller," the tale of a provincial American girl in Rome that established James's literary reputation, and "An International Episode" are superb examples of his focus on the clash between American and European values.

And in "The Aspern Papers," "The Alter of the Dead," and "The Beast in the Jungle," the author's remarkable sense of irony, his love of plot twists, and his view of male-female relationships find exquisite expression.
