What Maisie Knew By Henry James
eBook (ePub): $1.52
Originally serialised in the New Review in 1897 before being published in book form later that year, What Maisie Knew details the fate of a young daughter, Maisie of the title, as she is flung back... More > and forth between divorced parents who care very little about what might be good for her. The narrative follows Maisie's impressions as her parent, Beale and Ida Farange, are divorced, find new partners, passing her back and forth twice a year and change her governess. In its subject matter, What Maisie Knew, is a furious indictment of English society as James saw it, particularly the abdication of parental responsibilities.

Where saffron-robed monks once padded in silent contemplation, Led Zeppelin now blasts from the doorways of GI bars, and drunken Americans on all fours vomit into the gutters. But it’s here in this unlikely setting that Malcolm meets a Thai girl, “the other half of his flesh.”< Less
