In three beautifully crafted, dramatic acts, James's little-known novel unravels the painfully complicated emotional bonds which exist within a group of friends and lovers connected by two neighboring homes as they fight publicly for preferment, reciprocation ,and successful marriage.
With the exception of The Turn of the Screw, Henry James is better known for his beautiful, byzantine prose than he is for narratives that will keep a reader up all night, but The Other House is a pause-resister. Perhaps that is what inevitably happens when a plot revolves around a horrific murder committed in the heart of blue-blooded England.
Graeme Malcolm, a Scottish television and Broadway actor known for his work on Boardwalk Empire, lends his lovely, mature accent and impeccable meter to James's ornate sentences. As James conceived this novel as a play, it is especially well suited to being performed.
