Fine late James

This book is a masterfully and uncannily astute and deep look into the mind of a child as she observes and is battered by the world of adults. James' deftly delicate treatment the story is moving and enchanting at the same time.

- Alain "professor. like great and VERY good books, fiction and history, mainly"

enjoyable second reading

Having struggled once through Henry James's late prose style in What Maisie Knew, I appreciated it a lot more the second time with the help of Flo Gibson's recording. This is the only audio of this book that I have been able to find, and Gibson's style works pretty well here, although it is sing-songy and monotonous at times. I often went back to read sections I had heard to better pick up the humor and nuances. The sound quality is not great; a few words here and there are inaudible.
