Summary of The Ambassadors Summary of The Ambassadors Reviews for The Ambassadors An Excerpt from The Ambassadors
An incomparable Henry James’s novel in a new edition

Featuring a new introduction, it is a brilliant and sophisticated satire of manners and morals in the best Jamesian tradition. The Ambassadors is a subtle exploration of American responses to Europe in which a Boston blueblood’s son becomes involved with an unsuitable woman.

“He is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare in the history of poetry.”
—Graham Greene
