Cover art:


The novel opens with Prince Amerigo musing in Bond Street on his approaching marriage, and on the likely consequences of an alliance between Roman aristocracy and American millions.

'The Golden Bowl is a work unique among all his novels: it is James s only novel in which things come out right for his characters

... He had finally resolved the questions,

curious and passionate, that had kept him at his desk in his inquiries into the process of living. He could now make his peace with America - and he could now collect and unify the work of a lifetime'

- Leon Edel in The Life of Henry James

A wonderfully luminous drama - Gore Vidal
