Summary of The Europeans Summary of The Europeans Reviews for The Europeans An Excerpt from The Europeans
An incomparable Henry Jamesís 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 Europeans, one of Jamesís most popular and optimistic novels, has at its center an expatriated American raised in Europe who, determined to find a new husband, flees from her crumbling marriage and travels to Boston with her younger brother.

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